READING 

THE 

Although charts are used primarily 
to follow the progress of specific titles, 
close analysis of the hest seller lists 
from the standpoint of trends and 
changing tastes is frequently extreme- 
ly educational. 

Close scrutiny of this week’s charts 
reveals a nuinher of interesting facts. 
For example: 

Three of the nation’s top five rec- 
ords are “live” recording sessions, 
waxed on the spot. Stevie Wonder hit 
the number one spot with “Finger- 
tips.” Trini Lopez appears headed 
right to the top w ith “If I Had A Ham- 
mer.” And Allan Sherman’s “Hello 
Mudduh, Hello Fadduh,” which also 
has audience reactions, also went to 
the very top. Although live sessions 
have heen commonplace in the LP 
field, they have not dominated the 
singles area. 

Perhaps the industry is missing the 
boat by not issuing more such disks. 
It’s quite obvious that a live audience 
frequently inspires an artist to “peak 
heights” and results in a performance 
that overshadows a studio date of the 
same number. 

The chart also reveals that stand- 
ards are still outstanding material for 
singles success when given the proper 
treatment. Three big ones, “Blue Vel- 
vet,” “Frankie & Johnny” and “Won- 
derful, Wonderful” are in the top 
twenty, and “Why Don’t You Believe 
Me” is bulletting up the charts in the 
forty area. 

Some trends are obvious — such as 
the way The Twist hit the charts. But 
close observation frequently tells all 
about the more subtle, but still strong, 
money-making trends. Surfin’ music, 
for example, sort of crept up on every- 
body, but the charts showed it early. 
The excitement about The Monkey, in 
the form of “Monkey Time,” “Mick- 
ey’s Monkey” and “Everybody Mon- 
key,” was another one that was sort 
of unexpected but showed up loudly 


BETWEEN 

LINES 


and clearly. Future weeks should show 
whether “Eefin’,” a new sound and 
gimmick that seems to have people 
hoppin’ in the Nashville area, is to be- 
come a big national fad. It’s certainly 
a wild novelty sound that could catch 
the public’s fancy. 

The LP charts also tell their own 
story of the changing scene. Of the top 
35 LP’s in the nation last week, 25 
were by artists who enjoy strong sin- 
gles success. And most of these LP’s 
are directly related to hot singles. 
Since five of the top 35 are film track 
albums, it’s quite obvious how domi- 
nating singles names are in the LP 
field. Only a few years ago, singles- 
type artists had much weaker repre- 
sentation in the album area. 

Back on the singles chart again, it’s 
also interesting to note that Trini 
Lopez’ “Hammer” hit is so successful 
even though the song had a huge run 
a little while ago via the Peter, Paul 
and Mary platter. There’s no reason 
why this can’t happen more often. 
When a company has enough faith in 
a strong recording of a tune that hit 
recently, or gets an indication from 
the field, it should give the disk a 
chance. We have heard many such 
sensational takes in LP’s that many 
companies fear releasing. Trini’s hit 
also indicates there may be a wealth 
of hit material in the folk field for 
pop artists. 

The charts also indicate that “Left 
Field’ is still the biggest area for dis- 
covering huge hits. Unknowns con- 
tinue to be strongly represented all 
over the charts, frequently with the 
nation’s biggest records. 

We’ve only covered a few of the in- 
teresting revelations that can be gar- 
nered from close study of charts. 
There probably are many more. 

It might not be a bad idea to make 
close study of the charts a required 
homework assignment for everyone in 
the record industry.

Capitol’s Stabilization Move: 
Revision Of Its LP Exchange Policies, 
5% ‘Cash In Lieu’ Option Dropped 



N7V/ YORK— Phil Skaff has re- 
Ins veep post at Kapp Rec- 
-'•rds. It is strongly rumored that 
Skaif will join Liberty Records in a 
key administrative position. Skaif, 
with the Kapp organization for the 
past three years, is expected to clarify 
his future afiUiation in the next week 
or so. 


Cahn Takes Over Skaff's 
Functions At Kapp 

NEW YORK — Dave Kapp, president 
of Kapp Records, announced last week 
that A1 Cahn, the label’s national 
sales manager, will take over the 
duties & responsibilities previously 
held by Phil Skaff, veep of sales, who 
has resigned (see separate story). 

Cahn, a recently arrival to the 
Kapp label from Cameo-Parkway, 
met briefly with his staff last week to 
discuss his new activities. He pointed 
out the success of Kapp’s LP program 
and stated that current sales policies 
at the label would remain in effect. 


EEFIN' 

IS COMIN' 

NEW YORK — Out of the Ozarks may 
come the next big sound on disks. It’s 
a style of vocal rhythmic accompani- 
ment called Eefin’. It’s not new — it 
goes back some 100 years — but it’s 
zany enough to smash through in 
adaptations for the teen and/or folk- 
pop markets. 

According to reports received by 
Cash Box from Nashville last week, 
the studios there are busy day and 
night putting Eefin’ tunes on wax. 
The first two entries, released last 
week, came from Epic Records with 
its “Eefenanny,” by the Ardelles, and 
from Monument Records, “Little 
Eefin Annie” by chanter Joe Perkins. 

The Epic disk grew out of an inci- 
dent in July when A&R exec Bob 
Morgan, A&R producer Jerry Ken- 
nedy, publicity exec Billy James and 
chanter George Maharis were attend- 
ing sales conventions in Miami and 
Las Vegas. During a plane trip Ken- 
nedy began to Eef and soon taught 
the others and they Eefed their way 
to Vegas. 

From Monument’s John Sippel came 
word that the diskery’s Bob Moore 
and John ^MacRae had written a tune 
called “Little Eefin Annie” that was 
immediately waxed by Joe Perkins 
and backed by another tagged, “Uncle 
Eef.” 

It is interesting to note that several 
Nashville musicians sat in on both the 
Epic and the Monmument sessions,

Decca Inks The Safaris 



NEW YORK — Decca Records has 
inked The Surfaris, a major part of 
the surfin’ craze with their disking, 
on Dot, of “Wipe Out.” 

According to Leonard W. Schneider, 
the label’s exec veep, the pact, con- 
summated in Calif., calls for the in- 
strumentalists to be exclusive Decca 
artists over a long-term. Group’s ini- 
tial singles offering for Decca is 
“Point Panic” and “Waikiki Run.” 
All subsequent diskings by the crew 
will be under the direct supervision 
of Charles “Bud” Dant, Decca’s west 
coast A&R staffer. 

Team is composed of: Jim Fuller, 
guitar; Jim Pash, sax; Ron Wilson, 
drums; Pat Connelly, guitar & leader; 
and Bob Barryhill, guitar. Boys, rang- 
ing from 14 through 18, hail from 
Glendora, Calif., where they attend 
school & perform at teen hops. 


HOLLYWOOD — Capitol Records has 
announced a significant move to- 
wards a more stabilized industry with 
word last week, from Capitol Records 
Distributing Corp., of a revision of its 
album exchange policies beginning 
Oct. 1. 

On that date, CRDC will eliminate 
its five percent “cash-in-lieu” option 
and rely solely on liberalized product 
exchange and return plans. 

According to Bill Tallant, CRDC 
vice president and national sales man- 
ager, the five per cent option was 
originally developed as an incentive 
for customers to retain rather than 
return merchandise. However, the 
liberalizing of CRDC’s return policies 
“has neutralized and outmoded the 
five per cent ‘cash-in-lieu’ option so 
that it no longer encourages customer 
retention of product. The change is a 



JIM DENNY 


NASHVILLE — Jim Denny, a giant in 
the country and western music world, 
died of cancer last week (27) in 
Nashville. 

Denny, 52, was riding the crest of 
success with the Jim Denny Artist 
Bureau and his Cedarwood Publishing 
Company. 


Amy-Mala's Deal 
With Embee Brings 
Label Teen Favorites 

NEW YORK — Larry Uttal, general 
manager of Amy-Mala Records, an- 
nounced last week the inking of an 
extensive production deal with Embee 
Productions, Inc., which will bring 
under the A-M banner such name 
teen performers as Del Shannon, 
Johnny & The Hurricanes and Don & 
Juan, among others. 

Amy-Mala will be releasing disks by 
the aforementioned artists, Uttal said, 
when Embee’s present producing con- 
tracts with other companies expire 
in Oct. 

First artists to be released under 
the new agreement are Kenny Chan- 
dler and The Folk III. Chandler, who 
had a chart ride recently with 
“Heart,” has cut a pop version of the 
big country hit, “Happy to Be Un- 
happy.” 

Running Embee are Irving Micha- 
nik and Harry Balk. 


more realistic adaptation to today’s 
market conditions and customer re- 
turn practices.” 

In announcing the policy change, 
Tallant stated that “CRDC customers 
are broadly protected by our two ex- 
isting exchange plans — the 100 per 
cent Basic Stock Protection (BSP) 
policy and the 10 per cent album ex- 
change privilege. 

“These two plans — particularly 
BSP — offer a dealer, rack-jobber, or 
one-stop maximum protection against 
being overstocked,” Tallant said. “Be- 
fore we had these policies working as 
smoothly as they now are, the five 
per cent ‘cash-in-lieu’ option was a 
necessity. Now, we believe it it is out- 
dater and unnecessary.

Kapp Backs Policy With Changes In Dis't 


Kapp Records’ national sales man- 
ager A1 Cahn has announced four 
distribution changes in accordance 
with policies established early last 
month at its sales meeting in Chi- 
cago. 

The changes are as follows: 

1. Elimination of Hartford, Con- 
necticut as a distribution point with 
the territory being assigned to Music 
Suppliers of New England (Boston), 
which will now cover all of Connecti- 
cut in addition to Maine, Vermont, 
New Hampshire and Massachusetts; 

Best Distributing Co. (Buffalo), 
which will service all of New York 
State as far south as Middletown, 


New York. 

2. Elimination of Cincinnati, Ohio 
as a distribution point with the ter- 
ritory being assigned to Main Line 
Cleveland, Inc. (Cleveland). 

3. Elimination of Great Falls, 
Montana with the territory now be- 
ing assigned to Fidelity Electric Co. 
( Seattle ) . 

4. Elimination of Phoenix, Arizona

ritory being assigned to Hart Dis- 
tributors, Inc. (Los Angeles). 

Kapp said it believed that these 
four changes will strengthen its dis- 
tribution and achieve “greater stabil- 
ity for merchandising and sales.”

NEW YORK — Lou Klayman last

The firm, which was previously

Columbia Opens Int'l Publishing Dept. 
Headed By Shapiro; Stratta & Rosaly 
Upped In Label's Int'l A&R Division 


NAT SHAPIRO 


NEW YORK — The international 
dept, of Columbia Records has 
launched an international music pub- 
lishing operation, which will be 
headed by Nat Shapiro, who is being 
promoted from his post as director of 
international A&R and creative serv- 
ices. 

Shapiro will be responsible to Har-

NEW YORK — A few months ago, 
the concept of “Price Stabilization” 
bowed on the record scene and went 
on to become an important term in 
the industry’s lexicon. 

Now another term appears to be 
getting extremely heavy lip service 
in the trade. What effect it will have 
on the future of the record industry 
and its current merchandising meth- 
ods or whether these words have 
much significance at all, remains to 
be seen. But for some reason there 
has been excessive discussion recently 
on the subject of “DUAL DISTRI- 
BUTION.” 

The words are not new. They have 
been used often by one-stops, rack 
jobbers, leased outlet operators, etc., 
as the next major step the record in- 
dustry will be faced with. At their 
recent conventions NARM members 
(the rack jobber association) used it 
frequently to describe a phenomenon 
which “must” develop if the record 
industry is to reach greater heights 
in the area of distribution. 

In its most basic terms. Dual Dis- 
tribution is accepted to mean the 
marketing of product in any given 
territory through more than one dis- 
tributor. To date, most of the top 


line manufacturers have made their 
product available through only one 
distributor in an area. 

But there seems to be an increas- 
ing belief on the part of a number of 
people in the business that a key 
company, or possibly more than one 
important company, will change this 
pattern and shortly will institute a 
Dual Distribution merchandising sys- 
tem in certain territories. 

A dual system is understood to ex- 
ist in a number of other industries 
such as the tobacco business where 
there are many jobbers in a specific 
territory and where it is not unusual 
to see more than one salesman from 
more than one jobber bumping into 
one another at a retail outlet. 

How this will operate in the record 
industry, if it develops at all, is at 
the moment very vague. Some refer 
to a system under which one distrib- 
utor would cover large users while 
another services all the smaller ac- 
counts. There is talk about an over- 
ride that would be paid to one dis- 
tributor on the other’s sales. Others 
see a number of companies which 
service large users being appointed 
distributors and being given the 
right to buy at distributor prices.

of the Week 


“BUSTED” (2:06) [Pamper BMI— Howard] 

“MAKIN’ BELIEVE” (2:48) [AcufF-Rose BMI— Work] 

RAY CHARLES (ABC-Paramount 10481) 

Chances are the ‘Genius’ will have another two-sided smasheroo in his 
newest ABC stand. On one half (from his current LP chart-bust’er, 
“Recipe For Soul”), Ray takes a Harlan Howard ‘everything’s-gone- 
wrong’ tune, tagged “Busted,” and works it over in most appealing rock- 
a-waltz manner. Side’s already busting loose. The other end is the touch- 
ing Jimmy Work country hit, “Making Believe,” that sports a lilting and 
beautiful, string-filled choral-ork showcase. 

“DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S ALL RIGHT” (2:46) 


[M. Witmark ASCAP — Dylan] 

“AUTUMN TO MAY” (2:43) [Pepamar ASCAP— Yarrow, Stookey] 
PETER, PAUL AND MARY (Warner Bros. 5385) 

Peter, Paul and Mary, who are currently coming off the Bob Dylan- 
penned “Blowin’ In The Wind,” their biggest deck to date, seem destined 
to duplicate that success with this newie tagged “Don’t Think Twice, It’s 
All Right.” The new Dylan-penned tune is an infectious medium-paced 
country-styled folk item with a haunting, extremely pretty melody. The 
coupler is a tender updating of a warm folk evergreen. 

“FOOLS RUSH IN” (2:37) 

[Bregman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP — Bloom, Mercer] 

“DOWN HOME” (2:40) [Screen Gems— Columbia BMI— Goffin, King] 
RICK NELSON (Decca 31533) 

Rick’s a cinch to capture the teen market by storm with both ends of 
this oldie-newie Decca combination. From the evergreen dept, comes 
“Fools Rush In” — done up in an exciting new fast moving Latin beat 
showcase. The newcomer is a pretty sentimental opus, tabbed “Down 
Home,” that sports a winning thump-beat cha cha arrangement. Watch 
’em both. 

“POINT PANIC” (2:05) [Champion BMI— Surfaris] 
“WAIKIKI RUN” (1:58) [Champion BMI— Fuller] 

THE SURFARIS (Decca 31538) 

The Surfaris, who are still riding a ‘tidal wave of success’ aboard their 
“Wipeout” outing on Dot, should be in for more of the same with their 
Decca bow, “Point Panic.” It’s another ‘pull-out-all-the-stops’ all-instru- 
mental surf rocker that opens with someone screaming the tag. There’s 
an extended drum roll on the thunderous undercut that continues the 
craze. 

“RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET” (2:35) 

[Shapiro, Bernstein, ASCAP — Kennedy, Williams] 

“SONG FOR ROSEMARY” (2:27) [Anatole BMI— Domino] 

FATS DOMINO (ABC-Paramount 10484) 

Domino’s back and it looks like he has another big sales outing in his 
newest ABC effort. It’s the oldie, “Red Sails In The Sunset,” and it never 
sounded better than it does under Fats’ delightful vocal guidance. Chalk 
up a first rate rock-a-rhythmic backdrop for Bill Justis. The slower, 
walk-a-rhythm underlid’s an appealing all-instrumental with sans lyric 
choral chants. 

“CHING-A-LING BABY” (2:16) [Chapter, Zann BMI— Elgin, Maurier] 
“HEY LITTLE DONKEY” (2:11) [Chapter, Zann BMI— Elgin, Anisfield] 
THE ROCKY FELLERS (Scepter 1258) 

The refreshing sound of the Rocky Fellers is much in evidence on their 
new Scepter chart contender. It’s a bright, cha-cha-twist’er, tabbed 
“Ching-A-Ling Baby,” that the crew — with its young lead voice, decks 
out in happy-go-lucky hit style. Backing’s a catchy cha-cha-rock novelty 
that also merits loads of exposure. 

“MONKEY-SHINE” (2:07) [Jec BMI — Arnold, McVoy, Young] 
“LONG GONE” (2:15) Arc BMI — Thompson, Simkins] 

BILL BLACK & HIS COMBO (Hi 2069) 

The enticing shuffle-rock rhythm sound of Bill Black & His Combo re- 
turns to the wax scene for what looks like another sure-fire chart go- 
round. The new entry, tabbed “Monkey Shine,” is certain to keep the 
hoofers on the go ’round the clock. There’s a years-back funky shuffle 
blues sound to the easy-goin’ undercut. 

“YOU GAVE MY NUMBER TO BILLY” (2:04) 
[AMETROP BMI— Kornfield, Klein] 

“TOLD YOU SO” (1:57) [AMETROP BMI— Hoffman, Klein] 
MARGIE BLAINE (Seville 128) 

It’s quite possible that Marcie Blane can have another “Bobby’s Girl” 
chart triumph in her latest Seville session. It’s a captivating twist beat 
teen-angled romantic weeper, labeled “You Gave My Number To Billy,” 
that Marcie dual-tracks in very commercial fashion. Billy Mure hands in 
an equally potent ork showcase. Also keep an eye on the strong rock-a- 
shuffle performance on the lower end. 


SMOTHERS BROTHERS (Mercury 
72182) 

(B-f) “JENNY BROWN” (1:48) 
[Wolf, Mills — ASCAP — 
Wood] Dick Smothers takes a lyrical 
narrative lead on this turn-about 
tragedy. Tom comes in for some 
tragic recitation. The result is riot- 
ously funny and made highly listen- 
able by the top-flight musicianship 
and vocal ability of the brothers. Side 
could be a blockbuster. 

(B-b) “YOU GO THISAWAY” 
(2:27) [Folkways— ASCAP— 
Ledbetter, Lomax, Gibson, Silver- 
stein] A straightforward folk rendi- 
tion here. A spirited tune with earthy 
lyrics that also merits plenty of at- 
tention. 

FLIP BLACK (Jubilee 5458) 

(B-f) “DREAMS OF A FOOL” 
(2:13) [Cub — BMI — Smith, 
Cherval] The songster handles this 
ballad smoothly and professionally 
and gets a potent assist from a 
standout arrangement and choral-ork 
backdrop. Arrangement and perform- 
ance are stronger than material but 
the side could garner plenty of ac- 
tion. 

(B-f) “MY BOOK OF MEMORIES” 
(2:40) [Panther— ASCAP— 
Stride, Skylor] A teen-angled ballad 
here with more top-flight ork backing 
and slick arrangement. 

DICK WATSON (Gone 5144) 

(B-f) “GROOVY” (2:30) [Plane- 
tary — ASCAP — White] An 
easy-paced rock vocal hymm-to-her- 
charms offering with shades of Dixie 
thrown in. The chanter essays it well 
and gets an able assist from a male 
vocal group. Has teenage appeal and 
could get off the ground with some 
help from the spinners. 

(B) “BE ON THE LOOKOUT 
FOR THE WOMAN” (2:30) 
[Planetary — ASCAP — Shaw, White] 
The tempo jumps on this end. Usual 
rock and roll fare that the teeners 
go for. 

NINO ROSSO (London Int’l 10716) 
(B-f) “CONCERTO DISPERATO” 
(2:59) [Bourne — Rank — 
ASCAP — Simoni, Rosso, Lavagnino] 
Here is the theme from the “The 
Legion’s Last Patrol” flick, soon to be 
released, played sweetly by trumpeter 
Nini Rosso. Brief vocal in Italian is 
shadowed by strong instrumental 
treatment. A memorable theme that 
should interest late-nite program- 
mers. 

(B-f) “I VERDI ANNI” (2:42) 
[Edizioni Sprint — ASCAP — 
Rosso] More fine trumpeting by Rosso 
and a strong melody. Sans-lyric 
chorus hums along to provide smooth 
blending. 

FOUR COINS (VeeJay 551) 

(B-f) “(Little Darlin’) TAKE A 
BOW” (2:33) [Screen Gems 
Columbia BMI — Arthur, Keller] The 
longtime song team is out for teen- 
market coin in this merry tribute-to- 
the-loved-one gimmick. A section of 
the session is devoted to a solo nar- 
rative. Pro teen tune done with lots 
of rock polish. 

(B) “NINA” (1:58) [Mellin-Trio 
BMI — Russell, Van] Further 
genial work, with a Latinish rock 
backdrop backing the boys. 

RUSS DAMON (Laurie 3194) 

(B-f) “HIP HUGGERS” (1:59) Gil 
BMI — Lewis, Mosely] This is 
a bright shuffle-beat salute to the 
popular femme teen wearing apparel. 
Damon’s pro teen vocal is backed by 
sure-handed rock color from the 
combo & other warblers. Could make 
noise. 

(B) “HEAVEN SENT” (2:38) 
[Edwin H. Morris ASCAP — 
Ledo, Ballard] Brass statements are 
part of the speedy-beat love-found 
item. 


LINDA LAWRENCE (Epic 9607) 
(B-f) “AT THIS STAGE OF THE 
GAME” (2:05) [We Three 
BMI — Brass, Levine, Kooper] An un- 
usual-sounding romantic gets an im- 
pressive upbeat teen reading from 
the thrush & her back-up sound, 

which is an all-out, gimmick-loaded. 
This original entry should be watched. 
(B) “A TEAR FOR TOMMY” 
(2:32) [We Three BMI— 

Brass, Levine, Kooper] A plaintive 
try for the performer. 

THE DARDENELLES (Cameo 271) 
(B-f) “BABY DO THE FROOG” 

(2:24) [Cameo-Parkway BMI 
— Richards, Calloway] Songsters add 
to the teen-dance catalog with a 
whacky upbeat portrayal of a dance- 
lesson ditty. Deck is enveloped in ef- 
fective vocal-combo novelty bits. 

(B) “ALRIGHT” (2:24) [Cameo- 

Parkway BMI — Richards, Cal- 
loway] Another wild-one with a blues- 
shout orientation. 


THE PERSUADERS 
(Original Sound 39) 

(B-f) “TIJUANA SURF” (2:16) 
[Drive-in BMI — Buff] Crew 
could go places with this attention- 
getting, south-of-the-border tribute to 
the surfin’ craze. Combo’s vehicle is 
catchy, sometimes “Blue Moon”- 
sounding ditty. Of particular note are 
handclap-like percussion bits, which 
provide an effective opening. 

(B) “GRUNION RUN” (2:20) 
[Drive-In BMI — Zappa] Wild 
funky business. 

TOMMY LISS & MATADORS 
(Saxony 1005) 

(B-f) “TIMES IS TOUGH” (2:25) 
[Beau Chez BMI — Lysaght] 
The Cincy-based label can have a hot 
dual-mart, r&b-pop item in this rock- 
a-thump’er by Liss & Co. Deck has 
the sound that can come thru. Watch 
it. 

(B) “JUST IN MAKE BELIEVE” 
(2:21) [By Nash of Nashville 
BMI — Moe] Complete change-of-pace 
in this beat-ballad undercut. 

REGGIE BOYD (Liberty 55621) 

(B-f) “DRUMMER MAN” (1:47) 
[Selenas BMI-Turner] While 
vocalists pay tribute to the drummer 
man’s stature on rock sessions, a 
percussionist displays why he’s in 
great demand in the teen-market. 
Good rockin’ sound. 

(B) “COTTON PICKER” (1:55) 
[Selenas BMI — Turner] Blue- 
sy bounce-beat all-instrumental. 

THE MARK V (Heartbeat 58) 

(B) “JACQUELINE” (2:07) 
[Heartbeat ASCAP^ — Schw- 

artz] Legit song crew, a hit on the 
Mercury label sometime back with 
“I Got A Wife,” do a nice easy-go 
job on a sentimental ditty meant as a 
tribute to the First Lady. Seymour 
Schwartz’ “heartbeat trumpet” is the 
top backdrop sound. 

(B) “THE MAN” (2:45) [Heart- 
beat ASCAP — Schwartz] 
JFK is the man here. 

MAL STOVER (Minaret 114) 

(B-f) “MEMPHIS (2:26) [Arc— 
BMI — Berry] The Lonnie 
Mack best-selling instrumental gets 
a lively vocal treatment from the 
songster on this Minaret deck. A 
spirited ork backdrop sparked by sonie 
nimble guitar antics and a sans-lyric 
femme chorus make the side a canffl- 
date for brisk sales. The label is dis- 
tributed by Atco. 

(B-f) “LOOK BUT DON’T TOUCH” 
(1:59) [Painted Desert — BMI 
— Sharp, Isle] The chanter feeling- 
fully pleads his case but the girls 
reply, “Look But Don’t Touch.” Good 
country-rock sound that merits spins.

Pick of the Week 


“TOYS IN THE ATTIC” (2:52) 

[United Artists ASCAP — Duning, Sherman, Weiss] 

“WIVES & LOVERS” (2:29) [Famous ASCAP — David, Bacharach] 
JACK JONES (Kapp 551) 

Label’s strong good-music voice has a standout reading of the lovely 
flick main-title, “Toys in the Attic,” a moody item that at times recalls 
another big flick tune, “Picnic,” also cleffed by George Duning. Jones 
makes every -wistful word count, and his attractive full ork backdrop is 
fully sympathetic. (Coupler, “inspired” by a flick of the same name, is 
light swinger wherein Jones crosses over to the jazz-vocal area. 

“DON’T LET ME GO” (2:17) [Figure BMI — Woods, Kirkland, Johnson] 
“WHY WAS I BORN” (2:37) 

[T. B. Harms ASCAP — Hammerstein, Kern] 

“LITTLE ESTHER” PHILLIPS (Lenox 5575) 

This could be “Little Esther’s” most important chart date since her 
few-releases-back sales sizzler, “Release Me.” It’s a hip-swinging, beat- 
ballad pleader, titled “Don’t Let Me Go,” that the canary delivers in 
emotion-packed fashion. Superb Cliff Parman arrangement rounds out 
the winner. The lovely Hammerstein-Kern item, from “Sweet Adeline,” 
is treated to stellar performance by the gal and her support on the flip 
powerhouse. 

“THAT BOY OF MINE” (2:01) [Dandelion BMI— Finiz] 
“MONK, MONK MONKEY” (2:05) 

[Dandelion BMI — Finiz, Cook, Bowie, Walker] 

THE SHERRYS (Guyden 2098) 

The femmes, who now own Top 100 items in “Pop-Pop-Pop-Pie” and 
“Saturday Night,” can have their 3rd successful outing in “That Boy Of 
Mine.” Side’s a big-sounding thump’er that the gals put across with 
telling teen effect. On the flip they have a potent entry in the ‘monkey’ 
dance sweepstakes. 

“STRANGE FEELING” (2:33) [Arc BMI— Stewart] 

“SUGAR AND SPICE” (2:50) [Arc BMI— Stewart] 

BILLY STEWART (Chess 1868) 

Stewart, who made a solid chart impression a short-while-back with 
“Reap What You So,” can be in for a repeat performance with this new 
one. It’s an intriguing beat-ballad romantic hip-swinger, tabbed 
“Strange Feeling,” that Billy delivers in the sometimes quick vocal 
“Reap” fashion. Backing’s a pulsating blues-twist’er that can also step 
out. 

“A STORY UNTOLD” (2:15) [Tideland BMI— Griffin, Wilson] 
“ONE LIFE, ONE LOVE, ONE YOU” (2:33) 

[Michigan BMI — Boye, Swanson] 

THE EMOTIONS (20th Century Fox 430) 

The Emotions, who already have strong sellers under their belts in 
“Echo” and “L-O-V-E,” can again strike paydirt as they bow on the 
20th Century Fox label. This time the crew takes the Nutmegs’ years- 
back beat-ballad success, “Story Untold,” and refit it with a terrific new 
Leroy Kirkland-arranged stomp beat format that the kids’ll love. On 
the flip the fellas display their winning beat-ballad stylings. 

“DETROIT CITY NO. 2” (3:13) “RING OF SMOKE” (2:12) 

[Cedarwood BMI — Tillis, Dill, [Painted Desert BMI — Kilgore, 

Colder] Carter, Colder] 

BEN COLDER (MGM 13167) 

Colder, who also has one out this week under his real moniker (Sheb 
Wooley), follows his delightful ‘destruction’ of “Still” with two more 
rib-tickling take-offs on current pop-countey sensations. On one end Ben 
& chorus offer a crying-in-their-beer rout of Bobby Bare’s biggie. On 
the other end he coughs his way thru a way-out version of the Johnny 
Cash hit. Sales, spins and chuckles galore here.

“WASHINGTON SQUARE” (2:41) [Rayven BMI— Goldstein] 
“TURKISH DELIGHT ” (2:39) [Paris ASCAP— J. & N. Sherman] 
VILLAGE STOMPERS (Epic 9617) 

The Village Stampers seem destined to jump into the national lime- 
light with this initial Epic release tagged “Washington Square.” The 
tune is a catchy, Joe Sherman-arranged medium-paced folk-styled instru- 
mental stanza with interesting, diverse musical elements. Eye it. The 
coupler, “Turkish Delight,” is a rousing, jazz affair with some subtle 
oriental overtones. 


CLINT MILLER (Lenox 5574) 

(B-b) “CRABS WALK SIDEWAYS” 
(2:33) [T.M. — Resnick, Barry] 
Number is a charming folkish tale 
about the difficult romance of Herman 
the Lobster & Sally the Crab, which 
is relayed with much good-nature by 
singer Miller and his combo-chorus 
setting. Catchy item well-worth spins. 
(B) “BRIDGE ACROSS THE 
RIVER” (2:26) [Madchen & 
Bonnie — Jill — Miller] Countryish up- 
beat cut from the performer. 

THE ROCKETEERS 
(Glad-Hamp 2017) 

(B) “D R A G ST RIP” ( 2 : 30 ) 
[Swing & Tempo BMI • — 
Camb] Musicians are true to their 
tag with this wild rock stint — led by 
a sax — on an item named after the 
legal area for auto drag races. Good 
sock-rock offering. 

(B) “SUMMERTIME” (2:35) 
[Gershwin ASCAP — (Gersh- 
win, Gershwin] Sax is soulful in this 
unhurried reading of the evergreen, 
which is getting lots of teen-risk 
coverage of late. 

THE CINDARELLAS (Escapade 100) 
(B-f) “A BOY LIKE THAT” (2:25) 
[Hilliard, Day — ASCAP — 
Hilliard, Garson] The girls (two) 
coyly essay this infectious ditty about 
the perfect boy (who hasn’t been born 
yet). A clever arrangement spotlight- 
ing tinkling bells and a trombone add 
much to the proceedings. The pre-teen 
set should go for this one. 

(B) “ORANG-OU-TANG TAN- 
GO” (1:58) [Second Sound — 
BMI — Jones, Flip] A spritely novelty 
item here delivered with youthful 
enthusiasm. Also aimed at the very 
young. 

ANN RICHARDS & BILL MARX 
TRIO (Vee Jay 554) 

(B+) “I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR 
YOU” (2:50) [Remick— AS- 
CAP — Warren, Dubin] The lark feel- 
ingfully caresses the words to this 
warhorse in pure jazz manner. Ann 
Richards knows her way around a 
jazz vocal and her support from the 
Bill Marx Trio is a jazzophile’s de- 
light. A top-notch item for jazz pro- 
grammers. 

(B-f-) “BYE BYE, BLACKBIRD” 
(3:00) [Remick — ASCAP — 
Dixon, Henderson] Another evergreen 
gets some swingin’ treatment from 
lark and group. Deserves attention. 

SEBASTIAN (Colt 45 302) 

(B-f-) “NOBODY CAN DO THE 
DOG LIKE I DO” (2:25) 
[East, Wemar — BMI — Isleys] Sebas- 
tian wails for all to do the dog on 
this hard-di'iving rock tune and then 
declares nobody can do it like he does. 
All the pop dance crazes get a men- 
tion on this teen dance delighter. Top 
40 play is clearly indicated. Label is 
distributed by Atco. 

(B) “THE BEST MAN CRIED” 
(2:30) [Ark-La-Tex — BMI 
—Batchelor, Roberts] A tearful tale 
on this cut with the band blowing a 
dirge-like backdrop. An interesting 
sound with funky overtones. Could 
see some action. 


CATERINA VALENTE 
(London Int’l 10033) 

(B-I-) “MY HAWAIIAN MELODY” 
(2:10) [January BMI — Kasha, 
Gerard, Gorden] The fine inter- 
national talent has been set against 
the exciting Tamoure rhythm, a 
Polynesian step that made big news 
in France and some other parts of 
Europe earlier this year. As past 
Valente dates have shown, she’s at 
home under any rhythmic circum- 
stances. Can be a big airplay item. 
(B) “JA JA JA JA VA” (2:15) 
[Sea-Lark Ent. BMI — Gerard, 
Gorden, Mandel, Sachs] More Tam- 
oure-backed color. Both ends are sung 
in English by the over-dubbed star. 


THE BIG GUYS (Palette 5110) 

(B-f-) “WALKIN’ THE BOARD” ^ 
(1:57) [Zodiac BMI — Brech- 
ner] Combo comes around with a 
sure-fire surfin’ sound. Guitars & key- 
board lead the way & percussions 
keep up a steady rockin’ format. 
Could make noise. y > 

(B) “FAITH 7” (1:53) [Zodiac 
BMI — Levenson] Less com- 
plicated doings on a “Telstar”-like 
tune. ux - 


THE MURMAIDS ? 

(Chattahoochee 628) 

(B-I-) “POPSICLES & ICICLES” ■ 
(2:30) [Dragonwick BMI — ' 

Gates] A pretty teen affectionate re- 
ceives a springhtly Latinish-backed 
reading, with the gals turning in a 
pleasing blend. Inviting teen-roman- * 

tic. 

(C4-) “COMEDY & TRAGEDY” 
(2:03) [Conte-Fowley BMI — 
Fowler, Millermon] Less successful ^ 
teen-market venture. ^ 

THE HONEYS (Capitol 5034) 

(B-f-) “(Oly Oxen Free Free Free) 1 
HIDE GO SEEK” (1:45) 
[Screen Gems-Columbia BMI — Wil- 
son] The label’s femme surfin’ singers 
take hold of a novelty ditty based on 
the old kiddie game. Their stint is 
supported by tried-and-true surfin’ 
drive by the combo. Lots of polish on ■ 
the hot sound. " 

(B) “PRAY FOR SURF” (2:12) * 

[Annabelle BMI — Glantz, Ro- ■‘f- 
veil] More surfin’ jump stuff the kids 
should dig. < 

THE FIESTAS (Old Town 1148) 

(B-f-) “ROCK A BY BABY (Don’t 

Cry No More)” (2:26) [Mau- 

reen BMI — Stewart] Rock vocalists, 
a good-sounding disk attraction for 
sometime now, do pro upbeat blend , 
work, and are backed by fine bouncy- 
beat color from the combo. Reliable - 
hoptime date. 

(B) “FOOLISH DREAMER” 
(2:59) [Staccato BMI — Redd] 

More serious rock-market business, as 
the lead voice offers a potent reading 
of a drama-blues opus. 

JOHNNY RAY (Decca 31507) 

(B) “I CAN’T STOP CRYING . - 
FOR YOU” (2:32) [Time BMI 
—Baker, Baker, Weathers] Songster 
returns, with somewhat less emotion, 
to his earlier disk days, which pro- 
duced such big hits as “Cry” and “The ^ "" 
Little White Cloud That Cried.” 
Pretty Nashville-type ork-chorus , 
sound is in support. 

(B) “LONELY WINE” (2:47) ‘ - 
[Rosarita ASCAP i — Wells] 
Similar warbling by the artist on the 
oldie. Both ends should grab loads of 
airtime. 

FRANKIE FORD (Constellation 101) 

(B) “OCEAN FULL OF TEARS” ^ 
(2:30) [Screen Gems-Colum- 
bia BMI — Greenfield] Ford, a Top 100 ^ 

name some years ago with a revival 
of “Time After Time,” does a nifty 
swing-blues job on the blueser. He’s 
assisted by a band loaded with en- 
thusiasm. Dart Sales handles the •• 
diskery. 

(B) “CHINA TOWN” (2:17) , 

[Remick ASCAP — Schwartz, 
Jerome] The performer has a more ^ - 
relaxed upbeat touch here. 

CHARLIE MARIANO (Regina 287) 

(B-H) “THE SHOUT” (2:52) [La 

Forge ASCAP — Mariano] ^ 

Jazz saxist Mariano tops a fine jazz- 
blues “shout” sound. Sound has lots 
of bright invention & a good measure 
of commercial appeal. Hip jocks note. ^ ^ 
(B) “I FEEL PRETTY” (2:54) 

[G. Schirmer ASCAP— Bern- 
stein] “West Side Story’s” somewhat 
neglected child is the springboard for 
another worthy jazz waxing.

Pick Of the Week 


Newcomers 

In an effort to call D.J. attention to Pick reeorffs by "Neweomers" (artists never before on 
the Top 100) the editoriai staff of Cash Box wiii iist such records under this speciai heading. 


“EEFANANNY” (1:54) [Lowery BMI— Reed] 

“LONELY VALLEY” [Peter Maurice ASCAP— Sherman, Carr] 
THE ARDELLS (Epic 9621) 

The eefin sound— a whacky vocal rhythm accompaniment style, some 
100 years old — has entered the teen-market. It’s a natural for novelty 
dates, as “Eefananny,” a joyful folkish cut, so engagingly demonstrates. 
If the merry sound catches-on — and from where we sit it should — figure 
The Ardells to make the chart rounds with their version. Flip is a pretty 
non-eefin wistful. 


“LITTLE EEFIN ANNIE” (2:09) [Mimosa BMI— Moore, MacRae] 
“UNCLE EEF” (3:00) [Mimosa BMI — Moore, MacRae] 

JOE PERKINS (Soundstage 7 422) 

Look out for the eefin’ sound! The 100-year-old form of vocal rhythm 
accompaniment is tailor-made for teen sessions, and Perkins & his back- 
up companions make the zany most of it on “Little Eefin Annie,” a 
happy-go-lucky rock affair. Side can bust wide open. “Uncle Eef” is the 
tender story of the Negro who originated the eefin sound (he died at the 
end of a noose). 



JEAN THOMAS (Cade.'.ce 1438) 

• “THE BOY THAT I WANT 
DOESN’T WANT ME” (2:10) 

[Blackwood BMI — Farina, Thomas] 
The sentiments of the title could well 
mean a wistful type session, but the 
route the lark and combo backdrop 
take here has solid rock-cheer. Catchy 
tune is presented with a multi-track 
stint by the lark, whose backing is a 
happy-go-lucky affair. 

(B) “HE’S SO NEAR (Yet So 
Far Away)” (2:27) [Spanka 
BMI — J&T Thomas] A light gallop- 
ing sound supports the artist’s less 
hurried reading of a nice teen-ro- 
mantic^ 

PATTI PAGE (Columbia 42857) 

• “MAYBE HE’LL COME 
BACK TO ME” (2:45) [Screen 

Gems — Columbia BMI — Kolber, Kel- 
ler] Against a pronounced gospel- 
type backdrop, the longtime lark 
offers a persuasive reading of an 
emotional-laden item about a gal 
who’s willing to take a guy back on 
the rebound. Enough exposure might 
do the chart trick 

• “NOBODY” (2:29) [Gil BMI 
— Ship] A things-aren’t-look- 

ing-up blueser from the performers. 
Tune, not the ancient, can also make 
the grade. 

VITO & THE SALUTATIONS 
(Herald 583) 

• “UNCHAINED MELODY” 
(2:03) [Prank ASCAP— Zaret, 

Noi’th] The years-back sales-giant 
pic theme can make it big once again, 
this time via a ‘try-to-find-the-tune’ 
teen up-dating. It’s chock-full-of-vo- 
cal and instrumental tricks (a la the 
Marcels’ “Blue Moon”) that can bust 
wide open in no time flat. 

(B) “HEY, HEY BABY” (2:15) 
pit ng BMI — Rick, Fox] 
Strong thorep-j -twist beat doin’s on 
this end. 

JIMMY SMITH (Veive 10299) 

• “ANY NUMBER CAN WIN” 
(2:05) The vet jazz organist 

has a good chance of having f,ost click 
with this swingin’ madh’r.i-paced 
funky instrumental stanza,, Tune is a 
theme from a soon-to-be released 
MGM flick of the same 
(B-h) “WHAT’D I SAY?” (2:20) 
[Progressive BMI — Charles] 
This time out Smith teams-up with 
guitarist Kenny Burrell for a hard- 
driving, pulsating reading of the 
famous Ray Charles-penned tune. 



STEVE ALAIMO (Checker 1054) 

• “MICHAEL— Pt. 1” (2:20) 

[Sherlyn BMI — -Arr. Alaimo] 

Warbler could bring back the lovely 
folk-song to the charts (The High- 
waymen had the original Top 100 hit) 
to the charts with this lively sing- 
along format, somewhat like Trini 
Lopez’ “If I Had a Hammer” smash. 
Keep close tabs on this cut. 

• “MICHAEL— Pt. 2” (2:05) 

[Sherlyn BMI — Arr. Alaimo] 

The joyful session continues. 

SHEB WOOLEY (MGM 13166) 

• “HOOTENANNY HOOT” 

(2:29) [Channel, Soon ASCAP 

— Wooley, Karker] Wooley, who’s 
most recent chart appearance was 

under his Ben Colder alias, can make 
the grade via the Wooley tag as he 
jumps on the ‘hootenanny’ bandwagon 
here. Side, from the up-coming MGM 
pic, is a contagious, fast moving folk- 
novelty that can move out real fast. 

• “OLD RAG JOE” (2:49) [Apt 
ASCAP— Vance, Snyder] This 

end finds Sheb in a poignant narration 
about a heroic ragpicker who lost his 
life pushing a child (the storyteller) 
out of a car’s path. 

DENNY RANDELL (Ascot 2137) 

• “I’M BACK BABY” (2:10) 
[Painted Desert BMI — Lewis, 

Crane] This is a solid, not-the-same- 
tune reply to the current smash, “My 
Boyfriend’s Back.” Here, the fella is 
ready to make good his gal’s warning 
to another fella that he’d better leave 
her alone lest her boyfriend take care 
of him. Could move. 

(B) “BLUES FOR A FOUR 

STRING GUITAR” (2:05) 
[United Artists ASCAP — David, 
Bernstein] Randall does well on a 
legit blueser from the flick, ‘“rhe 
Caretakers.” 


KENNY CHANDLER (Amy 6074) 

“HAPPY TO BE UNHAP- 
PY” (2:30) [Central BMI— 
Bare] Chandler, who recently scored 
with “Heart” on Laurie, can have a 
big first-time-out on Amy stand with 
this potent cover of the big country 
hit by Gary Buck. Poignant shuffle 
beat effort that looks like a chart- 
maker. 

(B-p) “I DIDN’T KNOW HOW” 
(2:29) [Wiener, Gluck, Crane] 
More right-from-the-heart sounds on 
this touching romantic effort. Very 
pretty item that rates attention. 


THE CHAMPAGNES (Laurie 3189) 

(B) “CRAZY” (2:30) [Sky— Mac 
Ent. BMI — Schaeffer, Davis] 
Team’s front vocalist does a good 
blues job on the wistful romantic. 
Busy includes Mr. Bass Man chants. 

(B) “CASH” (2:35) [Sky-Mac 
Ent. BMI — Schaeffer, Davis) 
In this novelty, a fella lays on the 
line about his need for some cash. 


THE SOUL-MATES (Era 3109) 

(B+) “I GET A FEELING” (2:12) 
[Bamboo BMI — Davis, Jack- 
son] Lead voices (gal & guy) nicely 
tops this amiable blues romantic. 
Side’s good-natured way has a good- 
sound going for it. 

(B) “I WANT A BOYFRIEND 
(Girlfriend)” (2:04) [Bamboo 
BMI — Davis, Jackson] Duo is more 
serious on this end. 

THE DREAMERS (Fairmount 612) 

(B-p) “DAYDREAMIN’ OF YOU” 
(2:03) [Metric BMI— Sheeley, 
DeShannon] Gals blend in the cur- 
rent blues-styled idiom, and they do a 
reliable job on a worthy teen romantic. 
Sound fits teen programming to a T. 

(B) “THE PROMISE” (2:41) 
[Cameo-Parkway BMI — 
Straigis, Jackson] An appealing 
softie from the larks. 


TEDDY TANAKA (Mahalo 1014) 

(B) “MISTY SEA (Wakare No 

Isochi Dori)” (2:32) [Lucien 
BMI — Zanami] Tanaka, a songster 
from Honolulu who is of Japanese 
descent, offers a Japanese-lyric read- 
ing of a sentimental tune. 

(B) “SUZUKI-SAN’S FARM” 

(3:01) [Lucien BMI— P.D.) 
This is hip, English-done re-write of 
“Old MacDonald.” Label is based in 
Honolulu. 


ANTHONY & THE SOPHOMORES 

(Mercury 72168) 

(B-p) “SWINGIN’ AT THE CHAR- 
IOT” (2:14) [Merjoda BMI— 
Madara, White] Lots of joyful rock- 
oriented color from the singers & 
their ork backdrop as they tell of a 
gospel-act nitery. Title is wholly jus- 
tified. 

(B) “BETTER LATE THAN 
NEVER” (2:28) [Merjoda 
BMI — Madara, White] Boys turn to 
a wistful rock performance, and 
they’ve got a good teen tune to work 
with. 

THE DIXIEBELLES 

(Sound 7 Stage 2507) 

(B-p) “(Down At) PAPA JOE’S” 
(2:28) [Tuneville BMI — 
Smith] Here’s a novel sunny sound 
from an aptly tagged lark team. Be- 
sides their Dixieish quality, the gals 
receive infectious New (Jideans-like 
business from the musicians. Could 
be a left-field noise-maker. 

(B) “ROCK, ROCK, ROCK” 
(2:19) [Tuneville BMI — 
Everette] Gals do a straight rock 
stand & do it with well-done vitality. 

THE EBB TIDES (R&R 303) 

(B) “LOW TIDE” (2:17) [Mar- 
don & Canyon BMI — Phillips] 
The surfin’ crowd gets a no-holds- 
barred belt sound from the teen-mar- 
ket musicians. Merits a place on sur- 
fin’ time programming. 

(B) “BALLAD OF JED CLAM- 
PETT” (1:59) [Carolintone 
BMI — Henning] This is another sur- 
theme of TV’s popular “Beverly Hill- 
fin’ romp instrurruental. It employs the 
billies” show. Teeners will enjoy the 
workout. 


PAUL & RICK FREITAS 
(Paulrick 714) 

(B-p) “YOU WANT ME AROUND” 
(2:06) [Paul Richards — Frei- 
tas] A tune with a charming old-time 
flavor is updated with good upbeat 
rock color by the warblers & their ork 
backing. Likely to make many a teen- 
programming slot. 

(B) “THE BULL’S EYE” (2:22) 
[Paul Richards — Freitas] 
Happy instrumental-chant vocal item 
in a Latinish vein. 


HUEY SMITH & THE CLOWNS 
(Constellation 102) 

(B-p) “QUIET AS IT’S KEPT” 
(2:25) [Ace BMI— Smith] 
Longtime blues-pop vocal team sends 
out an infectious middle-beat signal 
to teen ears. Though familiar-sound- 
ing, it could catch-on. Label is distrib- 
uted by Ewart Abner’s Dart Sales. 

(B) “HE’S BACK AGAIN” (2:30) 
[Ace BMI — Smith] This sly 
blueser also possesses a genial sound. 

VINCENT EDWARDS (Decca 31534) 
(B-p) “THIS TRAIN” (2:13) 
[P.D.—] TV’s “Ben Casey” 
continues his singles career with a 
properly joyful reading of the famil- 
iar spiritual. End was culled from his 
new LP, “Vincent Edwards in Per- 
son.” 

(B) “LOOKING FOR SOMEONE” 
(2:52) [Vejac BMI — Ford] 
Cozy croon job by the singer-actor. 

LONESOME SUNDOWN 
(Excello 2336) 

(B-p) “I’M A SAMPLIN’ MAN” 
(2:07) [Excellorec BMI — 
Green] The r&b chanter unleashes his 
potent vocal talents full-blast on this 
extremely fast-moving tradition- 
oriented happy blueser. Side’s a 
natural for airplay. 

(B) “WHEN I HAD, I DIDN’T 
NEED” (2:18) [Excellorec 
BMI — Green] More fine blues sounds. 
This one a funky, harmonica-backed 
tear-jerker. 

THE SUNSETS (Challenge 9208) 
(B-P) “MY LITTLE SURFIN’ 
WOODIE” (1:58) [4-Star 
Sales BMI — Usher, Christian] The 
Sunsets add their sure-handed teen 
vocal talents to the surfin’ fad with a 
reliable speedy-beat blend & general 
good humor. The musicians pound-out 
a pro surfin’ sound. 

(B) “MY LITTLE BEACH 
BUNNY” (2:00) [4-Star Sales 
BMI — Usher, Christian] More surfin’ 
sounds displaying the team’s rock 
know-how. 


THE STANDARDS (Chess 1869) 
(B-p) “MY HEART BELONGS TO 

ONLY YOU” (1:59) [Merri- 

mac BMI — Daniels, Daniels] The 
pretty evergreen, which has seen teen 
action, gets a reliable teen-market 
blend from the boys. Combo setting 
maintains an unhurried rock pace. 
Kids will welcome exposure of the 
side. 

(B) “HELLO LOVE” (2:10) [Mir- 

sula BMI — Hodgkinson] The 
old whacky chant, upbeat teen bit. 
The guys prove they’re pros at this 
sort of thing. 

PANDA BERRY (Everest 2035) 

(B) “I’M HIS, HE’S MINE” 

(2:30) [4 Star BMI — Bur- 

gess, Mantz, Usher] Lark neatly han- 
dles — in over-dubbed fashion — the 
the nice teen sentimental. Backing 
her is a generally good-sounding, 
sprightly-beat combo-chorus get-up. 
Worth teen-area exposure. 

(B) “TA - RA - RA - BOOM - TI- 
AYE” (2:00) [4 Star BMI— 
Mantz] The oldie gets a lively teen 
re-write.

only those records best suited for commercial use are reviewed by Cash Box 



ROSS BAGDASARIAN 
(Liberty 55619) 

• “LUCY, LUCY” (2:50) [Mon- 
arch ASCAP — Bagdasarian] 
Bagdasarian, the real monicker of 
David (Chipmunks) Seville, can get 
teen-market Top 100 sales with his 
standout reading of a charming tune 
about a guy who hopes that his gal 
will give a “stranger” the gate, but 
comes to the conclusion that the oth- 
er guy is more than a stranger. A 
femme chorus & combo offer a fine 
bouncy rock setting. Could come- 
through. 

(B) “SCALLYWAGS & SIN- 
NERS” (2:08) [Monarch AS- 
CAP — Bagdasarian] A jolly folkish 
stand. 


BOBBY DAY (RCA Victor 8230) 

• “JOLE BLON (Little Dar- 
lin’)” (2:08) [Little Darlin’ 
BMI — Cooper, Byrd] Bobby Day, the 
man who got big attention a few 
years ago with “Rockin’ Robbin,” 
could be in for Top 100 action with 
this unusual upbeat sound. Tune it- 
self is a striking Cajun item, and the 
strong Day vocal is surrounded with 
a solid, big-sounding ork-chorus back- 
drops under Jack Nitzsche’s direction. 
Could be a big one. 

(B) “DOWN ON MY KNEES” 
(2:14) [Marcus & Saturn BMI 
— Nitzsche] Additional teen-market 
excitement. 


DODIE STEVENS (Dolton 83) 

• “I WORE OUT OUR REC- 
ORD” (2:08) [Screen Gems 
Columbia BMI — Sawy, Miller] There’s 
a chance that many teeners will be 
wearing out this deck, for it’s a 
strong pose by the lark & her all-out 
rock-a-string backdrop. Tune, a nifty 
teen number, tells of a gal who has 
not only worn out a disk she pur- 
chased with her lost-love, but her 
heart as well. Eye it. 

(B) “YOU DON’T HAVE TO 
PROVE A THING TO ME” 
(2:18) [Metric BMI — Sheeley, de- 
Shannon] Nice tune with a good lyric 
idea gets a fine slow-beat portrayal. 
Lark is multi-tracked, as she is on 
the top-half. 


THE OZELLS (Cub 9126) 

• “THE GOSSIPS” (2:15) 

[Premier Albums Colt-Virt 

BMI — Walker, Kellis] After an effec- 
tive gossip opening, the song team 
goes into a strong portrayal of a 
don’t-believe-the-gossips number. A 
potent full ork backdrop adds to the 
deck’s drama. Could happen. 

(B) “PLEASE DON’T GO” (2:10) 

[Premier Albums Colt-Virt 

BMI— Walker, Kellis] Femmes con- 
tinue their exciting teen-market man- 
ner here. 


ED AMES (RCA Victor 8231) 

• “MY LOVE IS YOURS” 

(2:15) [Sunbeam BMI — Be- 
soyan] Ed Ames of Ames Bros, is a 
solo here, and he does a strong read- 
ing of a good ballad from the up- 
coming musical, “The Student Gypsy 
or The Prince of Liederkrantz.” Ames 
is accompanied by a full-bodied, down- 
Nashville-way ork-chorus sound. 
Could show-up. 

(B) “SOMEWHERE” (2:05) [Sun- 

beam BMI — Besoyan] Another 
romantic from the show, which was 
written by Rick Besoyan, who made 
Off-B’way news a few years ago with 
his satirical “Little Mary Sunshine.” 



IAN & SYLVIA (Vanguard 35021) 

• “FOUR STRONG WINDS” 

(2:35) [M. Witmark ASCAP— 
Tyson] The folk label has a sensitive 
attraction in its new folk group find, 
which does a vei-y persuasive portray- 
al of a quite lovely folk-romantic. This 
end should be eyed closely. 

(B) “C.C. RIDER” (2:40) [P.D.] 

A lusty account of the old 

ditty. 


THE HI-LO’S (Reprise 20210) 

• “LITTLE MISS TEARDROP” 
(2:36) [Valleydale BMI— 
Shayne] The noted jazz vocalists are 
strictly after teen-acceptance with 
this solid, soft-spoken blend on a first- 
rate teen wistful. Fellas could wind- 
up with a Top 100 stand here. 

(B-(-) “SILLY BOY” (2:35) [Vine 
St. ASCAP — Cole, Tipton] 
More teen-trade stuff from the song- 
sters. This one has a brighter ap- 
proach. 


BILLY VAUGHN (Dot 16522) 

• “I’M SORRY” (2:00) [Cham- 

pion BMI — Self, Allbritton] 
The lush Vaughn ork takes attractive, 
triplets-included care of the pretty 
tune, the awhile-back Brenda Lee 
smash. Number could make noise 
anew in its new sans-vocal light. 

(B) “RAG MOP” (1:59) [Hill & 

Range BMI — Wills, Anderson] 
Frisky display of the old novelty item. 


CHARLES DELL (Golden Crest 577) 

• “I’M HERE TO TELL YOU 
(What Ronnie Couldn’t Say)” 
(2:07) [David BMI— Dell] Warbler 
Dell could have a Top 100 with this 
bright, Bobby Vee-like pose, whose 
vehicle has a strong melodic line for 
the teeners. Artist’s multi-tracked 
delivery is assisted by femme voices. 
Should be eyed closely. 

(B) “LET’S TELL HIM NOW” 
(2:06) [David BMI— Dell] As 
the title indicates, a gal has fallen 
out of love with one guy & into love 
with another. Nicey cozy-rock entry. 


BUNKER HILL (Mala 464) 

• “YOU CAN’T MAKE ME 

DOUBT MY BABY” (2:14) 
[Florentine BMI — Hill] Hill, who has 
a solid sales-puller in bot the pop and 
r&b marts with his “Hide & Seek,” 
session, can do it again with this 
hard-rock blues thumper. Hill wails 
with loads of feeling on this deck to 
watch. 

(B) “THE GIRL CAN’T DANCE” 

(1:54) [Florentine BMI— Hill] 
More screechin’ here and at a jet 
speed clip-a la Little Richard’s “Long 
Tall Sally.” 


BOBBY COMSTOCK & COUNTS 
(Lawn 219) 

• “THIS LITTLE LOVE OF 
MINE” (2:34) [Bae, Debbie 
Anne ASCAP — Mammarella, Bennick, 
Foster, Gates] Comstock can head 
back to “Let’s Stomp” chart territory 
with this exciting rocker based on the 
familiar gospel-folk tune, “This Little 
Light Mine.” Terrific support from 
the Counts. 

(B-h) “YOUR BOYFRIEND’S 
BACK” (2:11) [Blackwood 
BMI — Feldman, Goldstein, Gottehrer, 
Comstock] This end’s an engaging 
‘answer’ to the Angels’ chart-topper. 


HUGO WINTERHALTER ORCH. 
(ABC-Paramount 10483) 

(B-h) “INDIAN SUMMER” (2:17) 
[Harms ASCAP — Herbert, 
Dubin] This timely item carries an 
effective-sounding arrangement. The 
oldie is presented with a “falsetto” 
organ sound, while percussions ala 
tom-toms dominate the scoring of the 
rest of the ork. Could get around. 

(B) “BLUE CONCERTO” (2:30) 
[AMPCO ASCAP— Gaze] Or- 
gan has a bass effect in this unhurried 
work on a tune that at times re- 
sembles “More.” 


THE DUBS (Josie 911) 

(B-h) “WISDOM OF A FOOL” 
(2:25) [Robert Mellin BMI — 
Alfred, Silver] Vet rock team, whose 
oldie-but-goodie contribution was 
“Could This Be Magic,” appealingly 
revive the old teen classic. Fine soft- 
spoken blend in a years-back teen- 
market vein. 

(B) “THIS I SWEAR” (2:15) 
[Southern & Calico ASCAP — 
Rock, Skyliners] Another understand- 
ing encore for an old rock-ballad hit. 
The Five Keys had the original click 
on the top-half, while The Skyliners 
came through on this item. 


THE HEIGHTSMEN 
(20th Century Fox 421) 

(B-f) “WILLIE JOHN” (1:51) 
Record Music BMI — Chase] 
Folk team offers a robust reading of 
a traditional-type item about a re- 
spected jockey who can really ride 
’em. Deck is right in the current 
Hootenanny groove. 

(B) “WINKIN’ BLINKIN’ & 
NOD” (2:56) [Record BMI— 
Chase] Songsters continue their folk 
ways with a touching rendition of a 
haunting item somewhat on the order 
of “Puff (The Magic Dragon).” 


LYN EARLINGTON (Jamie 1259) 

(B-h) “DON’T MAKE MY HEART 
BLEED” (2:37) [Nujac BMI 
■ — ^Washington, Lawrence] The song- 
ster gets to the heart of this ex- 
pressive blueser, and so does the very 
inviting Nashville-inclined ork back- 
drop. A very touching display that 
could get places with enough air- 
time. 

(B) “I REALLY GO FOR YOU” 
(2:30) [Nujac-Rockmaster 
BMI — Washington, Lawrence, Broad- 
way] More rhythmic blues doings 
from the performer. 


AUDREY AIKEN (Petal 1030) 

(B-f) “DOWN CAME MY TEARS” 
(2:30) [Dunrovyn BMI — Sim- 
mons, De Angelis] Label’s new R&B- 
pop voice gives-out with good blues- 
styled emotion. A backbeat gimmick 
& male voices form a good busy-beat 
backdrop. Label, currently doing big 
country-mai’ket noise with Gary 
Buck’s “Happy To Be Unhappy,” is 
handled by Circa, the national distrib. 
(B) “I STILL LOVE YOU” (1:50) 
[Wemar & Dunrovyn BMI — 
Simmons] A snappy blues sound ac- 
companies the lark’s semi-belt pose. 


BILLY JOE & THE CHECKMATES 

(Dore 685) 

(B+) “LAST DANCE” (2:08) 
[Meadowlark ASCAP — 
Hunter] The musicians come-up with 
a fine cheek-to-cheek sound for the 
kids. Soft keyboard ripples, a warm 
organ & good percussion bits add-up 
to very listenable session, too. Could 
happen if it fills the airwaves. 

(B) “MY FRIEND THE RAIN” 
(1:57) [Meadowlark ASCAP 
— Lewis, Hunter] Similar goings-on, 
but a shade less interesting. 


RORY-0 (Coral 62377) 

(B-f) “FOR EVERY BOY THERE’S 
A GIRL” (2:07) [Penthouse— 
ASCAP — Worth] The thrush waxes 
hopeful in multiple track in declaring 
there’s a boy for every girl. The ballad 
romancer is easy-paced and strictly 
teen-oriented. The disk is danceable 
and should garner some spins from 
top 40 deejays. 

(B-f) “MAKE A WISH” (2:30) 
[Sure Fire — BMI — Bancino] 
A lyrical weeper here with a strong 
beat geared for teen dancing pleasure. 
Side could also be a noisemaker. 


MILES DAVIS (Columbia 42853) 
(B-f) “DEVIL MAY CARE” (2:33) 
[Arthur BMI — Kirk, Dorough] 
A new Miles Davis release is always 
worth a close look and this time the 
vet trumpeter and crew swing effec- 
tively on a fast-moving, high-powered 
happy-go-lucky affair. Watch it. 

(B-f) “SEVEN STEPS TO 
HEAVEN” (2:55) [Frontiers 
BMI — Feldman, Davis] On this end 
the combo dishes-up an interesting 
item with some rapid-fire melodic 
changes. Side is culled from Davis’ 
new Columbia LP. 


FABULOUS CHANCELLORS 
(Chandel 102) 

(B) “DIAMOND IN THE SKY” 

(2:38) [Chapman-BMI — Rich] 
A premier instrumental/vocal outing 
for this group that shows plenty of 
promise. The boys exhibit sound mu- 
sicianship and a natural feeling for a 
lyric on this rhythm ballad. The label 
is based in Boise, Idaho. 

(B) “BLACKOUT” (2:42) [Chap- 

man-BMI — Rich] The gang 
kicks up the tempo on this easy-paced 
bluesy instrumental. Very danceable. 

JOHNNY KONGOS 
(RCA Victor 8226) 

(B-f) “TULIPS FOR ’TIONETTE” 
(2:33) [Southern-ASCAP — 
Kongos] The songster feelingfully 
essays this ballad weeper ’bout a guy 
whose little girl has gone to a better 
world. Lush string backing and mul- 
tiple tracking are plus proceedings. 
Side has dual-market appeal and 
could spark sales. 

(B-f) “THE ENCHANTED SEA” 
(2:30) [Volkwein-ASCAP — 
Metis, Starr] Johnny Kongos gives a 
lilting and moodful updated treat- 
ment of this while-back hit by The 
Islanders. An easy-listening instru- 
mental.

ALBUM REVIEWS 


l>i<ILiPS 


“JUST ONE LOOK” — Doris Troy — Atlantic 8808 
Doris Troy, who is currently clicking in both 
the pop and r&b markets with “Just One Look,” 
tags this initial Atlantic LP after the biggie and 
includes eleven other potent selections. The lark’s 
polished, professional style and delivery is firm- 
ly evidenced on top-flight readings of “Trust In 
Me,” “Somewhere Along The Way” and “Some- 
one Ain’t Right.” Disk looms as a logical candi- 
date to score in the coin department. 


“BIGGEST HITS”— Orlons— Cameo C 1061 
Over the past year the Orlons have racked up a 
truly impressive track record of best-selling teen- 
oriented singles hits. A fine program of the 
group’s most popular biggies are included in this 
power-paced Cameo LP. Among the crew’s pre- 
vious triumphs contained here are “The Wah- 
Watusi,” “South Street” and “Don’t Hang Up.” 
Disk has enough built-in success ingredients to 
develop into a blockbuster. 


“NIGHTBEAT”— Sam Cooke— RCA Victor LSP 
2709 

Sam Cooke has built-up quite an impressive repu- 
tation with his distinctive, pop-r&b stylings but 
this small group-backed set ranks as one of the 
chanter’s best disks in recent years. The artist’s 
rich, wide-range baritone voice and highly-per- 
sonal style carries him in good stead on “Lost 
And Lookin’,” “Trouble Blues” and “Shake, Rat- 
tle And Roll.” Package seems destined to pull 
loads of loot. 


“THE MONKEY TIME”— Major Lance— Okeh 
OKM12105 

Major Lance tags this Okeh album after his 
current chart-climber, “The Monkey Time,” and 
includes eleven other hard-drivin’ rock tunes of 
present and near-recent vintage. The chanter ha& 
the teeners jumping with his smash single and 
this set should spark plenty of interest among 
the dance crowd. Click sides here are the title 
tune, “Land Of A Thousand Dances,” “Just One 
Look” and “Keep On Loving You.” Should hap- 
pen. 


“WHERE CAN YOU GO FOR A BROKEN 
HEART?” — George Maharis — Epic LN24064 
George Maharis, with three successful albums 
and several hot-selling singles to his credit, bows 
with Epic album number four; certainly his 
most polished to date. There’s a new richness 
and warmth in the chanter’s voice and delivery 
that add up to easy-listening pleasure for his 
many followers. The songster offers up a de- 
lightful potpourri of the old and new as he ren- 
ders “I’ll Be Around,” “I’ll Walk Alone” and his 
recent chart-stand “Where Can You Go (For A 
Broken Heart).” A sure-fire chart item. 


“JOHN HAMMOND”— Vanguard VRS 9132 
Once in a great while a new blues singer comes 
on the scene who deserves special attention. Such 
an artist is John Hammond. The chanter, who 
plays both the guitar and the mouth-harp on this 
initial set, displays a rich tradition-based voice 
and a feelingful, sensitive approach to the blues. 
Highlights of the set include “Give Me A 32-20,” 
“This Train” and “Mean Old Frisco.” A talent 
to watch. 


“THE BIG ONES”— Kenny Ball— Kapp KL 1340 
The trad trumpeter directs his musical attention 
to a fine batch of sturdies and popular favorites 
on this new Kapp LP outing and renders them 
in his distinctive, high-spirited Dixie-styled fash- 
ion. There’s plenty of opportunity for either 
dancing or listening pleasure as the Ball crew 
offers first-rate renditions of “Heartaches,” “The 
Good Life” and “Theme From A Summer Place.”

“SHANGRI-LA”— Percy Faith— Columbia CL- 
2024 

Percy Faith, who recently climbed the LP charts 
with his best-selling, “Themes For Young Lovers” 
album could score a similar success with this top- 
notch package of tunes inspired by the tropics 
and far-off lands. The orkster uses lots of lush 
strings to good advantage here as he smoothly 
surveys such melodic bits as “Shangri-La,” 
“Stranger In Paradise” and “Beyond The Reef.” 
A potent chart threat. 


“FOURTEEN 14K FOLKSONGS”— Limeliters — 
RCA Victor LPM 2671 

The best-selling pop-folk group unleashes their 
potent, distinctive talents full-blast on this top- 
drawer program of fourteen folk evergreens. The 
trio’s superior musicianship and rich, professional 
singing style carries them in good stead on “The 
Midnight Special,” “Sweet Betsy From Pike” and 
“John Riley.” LP should reach the charts in no 
time flat. 


“MALA FEMMENA”— Connie Francis — MGM 
E4161 

Connie Francis, hot on the heels of her recently 
released “American Waltz” LP, comes up with a 
package of Italian pop songs indicative of the 
new Italian pop sound. The lark, who recently 
saw plenty of chart action with her “Movie 
Themes” set, should strike early paydirt with this 
flavorful album which includes warm and feel- 
ingful readings of “Mala Femmena,” “Tango 
Della Gelosia” and “C’e Qualcuno.” 


“HOLIDAY FOR TEENS”— Paul & Paula — 
Philips PHS600-101 

Paul and Paula get ready for the coming winter 
season with this Philips outing aimed at the 
succession of holidays coming up between now 
and the new year. The songsters herald the season 
with a tune called “Holiday For Teens” and fol- 
low up with updated versions of such favorites 
as “Winter Wonderland,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and 
a novel adaptation tagged, “Holiday Hoote- 
nanny.” The duo’s huge following will surely want 
this one. 


“THE V.I.P.s”— Original Soundtrack — MGM 
E4152 

Miklos Rozsa, who composed the score for the 
new Taylor-Burton vehicle, “The V.I.P.s”, con- 
ducts the Rome Symphony Orchestra on this 
soundtrack waxing of the film score. The com- 
poser has an enviable record of past film scores 
and adds to his stature with this first-rate score. 
Inasmuch as film music usually serves only as 
background to set a mood or indicate change of 
action, Rozsa has produced some memorable 
themes. Melodic bands here are “The Bracelet 
(Love Theme)” and “Daffodils.” 

“ALL THE STARS VOL. 2” — Various Artists — 
Parkway P-7034 

Here’s the second stanza of the biggest hits by 
Parkway’s top-selling artists. All of the tunes 
here pulled plenty of coin the first time out and 
should see plenty of action the second time 
around. The package includes such winners as 
“Not Me” by the Orlons, “Dancin’ Party” by 
Chubby Checker, “Wildwood Days” by Bobby 
Rydell, “You Can’t Sit Down” by the Dovells and 
“Mashed Potato Time” by DeeDee Sharp. Strict- 
ly teen-angled, the set looms as a hot one. 


“LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL”— Eydie Gorme 
— Columbia CL2065 

Eydie Gorme goes gospel here as she follows her 
best-selling “Blame It On The Bossa Nova” out- 
ing with this rhythmic vocal romp on Columbia. 
The songstress uses her wide-range vocal charms 
to good advantage here as she liltingly surveys 
such gospel favorites as “Swing On, Sweet 
Chariot,” “Yes Indeed,” “01’ Time Religion” and 
“Gospel Train Is Cornin’.” The lark’s legion of 
loyal followers should come out in force for the 
set.

“CANADIAN SUNSET BOSSA NOVA”— Eddie 
Heywood — Liberty LST 7313 

Eddie Heywood has earned many laurels in the 
past for his distinctive piano stylings but this 
new Ray Ellis-arranged bossa nova set ranks as 
one of the pianist’s best dates in recent years. 
The relaxed, easy-going melodic Heywood key- 
board approach is firmly evidenced on “Canadian 
Sunset,” “St. Louis Blues” and “So In Love.” 
Deejays should find plenty of programmable ma- 
terial here. 


“PAUL LAVALLE AND THE BAND OF AMER- 
ICA PLAY BROADWAY SHOW STOPPERS”— 
MGM E 4148 

Here’s a delightful program of popular Broad- 
way selections rendered in spirited, marching 
tempos by Paul Lavalle and his ork. George Si- 
ravo has created some colorful, imaginative ar- 
rangements for the band. Among the best tracks 
here are “Get Me To The Church On Time,” 
“There Is Nothing Like A Dame” and “Strike 
Up The Band.” Loads of listening enjoyment 
here. 


“NEW DIMENSIONS IN BANJO AND BLUE- 
GRASS” — Eric Weissberg, Marshall Brickman — 
Elektra EKL 238 

In the past several years there has been a major 
revival of bluegrass music with city-based folk 
musicians. Among the leaders of this movement 
are Eric Weissberg and Marshall Brickman,

Clarence White on guitar, the boys dish-up some 
first-rate fast-moving traditional bluegrass 
sounds on this new Elektra LP. Highlights of the 
set include “Pony Express,” “Old Joe Clark” and 
“Mountain Dew.” 


“12 STRING GUITAR ”— Various Artists— World- 
Pacific 1812 

Here’s an interesting offering of folk blues and 
blue grass featuring the 12 string guitar of 
Glen Campbell backed by Rod Dillard on guitar, 
Doug Dillard on banjo and Dean Webb on bass. 
The tunes served here on World-Pacific are 
folk-bluegrass warhorses that have stood the 
test of time plus some of the modern favorites. 
The set should get plenty of dual-market action 
with items such as “If I Had A Hammer,” “Walk 
Right In” and “Blowin’ In The Wind” performed 
with artistry and feeling. 


“MUSIC OF MISS AMERICA”— Bernie Wayne— 
Ice Blue 670 

Bernie Wayne has come up with a package of 
ten tunes dedicated to the hopeful lovelies who 
enter the Miss America contest each year. The 
composer-conductor (he performs both chores 
here) opens with the Miss America theme that 
has become the trademark of each winner, and 
continues with “Everybody Can’t Be A Winner,” 
“The Magic Of Miss America,” “Queen Of The 
Ball” and six more in the same vein. The album 
is timely and should spark some interest. 


JAZZ PICKS OF THE WEEK 



“FULL NELSON”— Oliver Nelson— Verve V 8508 
The multi-talented Oliver Nelson (he arranges, 
conducts and plays tenor sax) displays all of his 
accomplished talents on this new big band set 
from Verve. Nelson does not utilize gimmicks 
but offers the various selections here is a free- 
flowing, straight-forward midstream style. The 
crew shines on “Miss Fine,” “Cool” and “Paris 
Blues.” Superior listening throughout. 





“TOWN HALL CONCERT”— Charlie Mingus — 
United Artists UAJS 15024 

The far-out, avant-garde jazz talents of Charlie 
Mingus are effectively showcased on this top- 
drawer set cut live at a Town Hall concert last 
year. Fans of the bassist will find some of the 
material here conservative compared to previous 
Mingus disks but the artistic quality is high 
throughout. Among the outstanding tracks here 
are “Clark In The Dark,” “Freedom” and “Don’t 
Come Back.” 



“DO NOTHING "TIL YOU HEAR FROM ME”— 
Johnny Griffin — Riverside 462 
Tenor saxman Johnny Griffin is joined by bassist 
Monk Montgomery and drummer Buddy Mont- 
gomery for this top-flight jazz session on Riyer- 
side. Unlike many of his jazz colleagues, Griffin 
adheres to a more lyrical approach to jazz that 
makes this session an extremely pleasant listen- 
ing experience. The saxman unleashes his talents 
on a swinging version of the title tune, “Do 
Nothing ’Til You Hear From Me” and then rides 
easily into a soulful treatment of “The Midnight 
Sun Will Never Set.” Jazz buffs will surely dig 
the set. 



“CLEOPATRA-FEELIN’ JAZZY” — Paul Gon- 
salves — Impulse A 41 

Ace tenor saxist Paul Gonsalves teams_ up with 
an accomplished group of jazzmen including 
Hank Jones on piano, Dick Hyman on organ, 
George Duviver on bass, Kenny Burrell on guitar 
and Roy Haynes on drums on this swingin’ set 
of tunes from the “Cleo” flick and other selec- 
tions of a similar feeling. The boys wail effec- 
tively in a potent midstream style on “Blue For 
Liz,” “Anthony And Cleopatra Theme” and 
“Cleo’s Asp.” Jazzophiles should really dig the 
disk. 


CLASSICAL PICKS OF THE WEEK 


“THE LORDS PRAYER”— The Patterson Singers 
— Vee Jay 5032 

The Patterson Singers, under the very capable 
direction of pianist-director Robert Patterson, 
offer up some top-drawer gospel tunes in a vein 
closer to the folk spiritual than the usual gospel 
fare heard today. The songs are delivered in a 
rhythmic, fervent spiritual manner with some 
feelingful arrangements by Patterson. Bright 
bands here are “Were You There,” “I’ve Got To 
Make It To The Promised Land” and “The Lord’s 
Prayer.” An Excellent gospel entry. 



BRAHMS: Violin Concerto In D, Heifetz/Reiner, 
Chicago Symphony Orchestra — RCA Victor 
LM1903

Jascha Heifetz’s memorable recording of Brahm’s 
Violin Concerto in D with Fritz Reiner conduct- 
ing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The at- 
tractively boxed set includes an informative

excellent item.

ture Records 1 

Here is a first-rate kiddie series of adventure

tributed by Sherman Sales which also handles 
Amy-Mala. This issue is one of six which also 
includes “The Invisible Man,” “The First Man In 
The Moon,” “Journey To The Center Of The 
Earth” and “War Of The Worlds.” The stories 
are excellently told with superb stereo effects 
and a complete cast of characters for each tale. 
A very educational series that should see brisk 
sales during the coming holiday season. 



BRAHMS: Symphony No. 2 in D Major; Aca- 
demic Festival Overture; Pierre Monteux conduct- 
ing the London Symphony Orchestra — Philips 
PHS 900 035 

Brahm’s famous “pastoral” symphony is given a 
masterful, melodic reading by Pierre Monteux 
and the London Symphony Orchestra on this 
first-rate classical offering from Philips. The vet 
conductor is cognizant of symphony’s rapid-fire 
chromatic changes and directs the orchestra with 
a sensitive but firm hand. As an extra-added- 
attraction the disk also contains the brief “Aca- 
demic Festival Overture.” Classical buyers should 
come out in force for the album.

duction, lacquers can be produced in New 
York and Hollywood simultaneously to 
save time.

everything — quality sound, fast service, 
star treatment. And they’ve found they

Nancy Wilson, who is currently 
riding: the Top 100 with “Tell Me 
The Truth” and the album chart 
with her “Hollywood-My Way” LP, 
was born twenty-six years ag:o in 
Chillicothe, Ohio, the eldest of six 
children. 

By 1952, when her parents lived 
in Columbus and Nancy was a stu- 
dent at West High School, the whole 
town was listening as she presided 
over her own twice-weekly TV show 
on WTVN. 

After graduation in 1954, Nancy 
attended Central State College in 
Wilberforce, Ohio, for a year before 
deciding it was time to concentrate 
on her singing career. With that she 
enrolled in the Rusty Bryant band 
for two-and-a-half years of road 
work and invaluable experience. 

Nancy decided to come to New 
Yoi’k in mid-1959 and establish her- 
self as a name entertainer. She be- 
gan singing weekends in Manhattan 
clubs. In short order Nancy was 
spotted by Capitol Records A&R 
executive Dave Cavanaugh, who 
signed her to an exclusive recording 
contract. The rest is history. 


Bob Dylan 



Proof-positive of the growing ac- 
ceptance of folk music is Bob Dylan, 
who is currently riding the album 
charts with “The Freewheelin’ Bob 
Dylan” on Columbia. 

Dylan was born in Duluth, Minne- 
sota on May 24, 1941. After living 
briefly in Sioux Falls, South Dakota 
and Gallup, New Mexico, he gradu- 
ated from high school in Hibbing, 
Minn. For six months. Bob attended 
the University of Minnesota on a 
scholarship. But like many of the 
restless, questing students of his gen- 
eration, the formal confines of college 
couldn’t hold him. 

Bob started to sing and play guitar 
when he was 10. Five or six years 
later wrote his first song. 

Dylan first came East in Feb. 
1961. His destination: the Greystone 
Park Hospital, Greystone Park, New 
Jersey. His Purpose: to visit the ail- 
ing Woody Guthrie — singer, ballad- 
maker and poet. It was the beginning 
of a deep friendship between them. 

Dylan achieved a highpoint in his 
career with an appearance at the 
recent Newport Folk Festival. 




PLATTER 

SPINNER 



WMBR-Jacksonville deejay Bill 
Greenwood has proven that Walt Dis- 
ney’s Mickey Mouse Club is far from 
outlived, in fact may await future 
growth in the radio field. In less than 
two weeks, the only known Mickey 
Mouse Club has attracted over eight- 
thousand registered members and is 
rapidly growing in the city. The ages 
of members ranges from eight to 
seventy-nine, but generally consists 
of middle and late teenagers. The 
promo started when Greenwood got 
an idea, switched his theme song to 
the Mickey Mouse Club March and 
identified himself as everybody’s 
“Mousekabuddy.” After several days 
of the Mouse Club March, listeners 
began calling WMBR (a top forty 
formater) identifying themselves as 
“Mousekateer Bob, Tom, etc. Green- 
wood then asked for membership 
cards for his club. After offering 
membership cards on the air for one 
day, the response for some 1,500 
cards came in the next day’s mail. 
Since that day, average mail to the 
deejay runs about 500 pieces a day, 
most letters containing lists of peo- 
ple to send cards to. At this time 
over 8,000 cards have been sent out 
and the response is growing daily. 


the air, and listeners will be invited 
to call in within 60 seconds. The first 
person with the correct answer will i 
win an LP, a portable radio, a set of I 
theater passes, or a sponsor’s product. I 

Chi-istmas music played repeatedly I 
on WINS-New York over the Labor"" 
Day weekend will dramatize to Holi- 
day drivers the need for extreme ^ 
caution on the crowded highways. 
The outlet will be scheduling “Jingle 
Bells” as part of a weekend long 
saturation spot campaign on traffic 
safety. The yuletide music will be for 
the benefit of those six hundred peo- 
ple who, according to the National " 
Safety Council, will not be around 
for Christmas because they will die ^ 
in Labor Day weekend traffic acci- 
dents. 

WIL-St. Louis recently completed 
its “Green Grass” contest, in which 
listeners were invited to mow the 
WIL call letters in their yard. The < 
station awarded prizes of power lawn 
mowers for the most unique and the - 
largest “WIL call letters” mowed in 
the grass. The largest call letters 
were nearly 100 feet in size. 


Robert R. Pauley, president of the 
ABC web, has joined the board of ad- 
visors of the Bedside Network of the 
Veterans Hospital Radio and Tele- 
vision Guild. The Bedside Network, 
whose members come largely from 
entertainment and communications 
media, services over 100 VA hospitals 
around the country with its unique 
therapy program for the recreation 
and rehabilitation of hospitalized vet- 
erans. 


In answer to President Kennedy’s 
speech on school “drop-outs,” WXYZ- 
TV-Detroit helped combat school ; 
“drop-outs” recently with informa- 
tion and entertainment for 110-min- 
utes on “Careerathon.” The enter- 
tainment was a typical teen-age 
“sock hop” in the studios with the 
recoi'd spinners from WXYZ, Fred 
Wolf, Lee Alan, Joel Sebastian and 
Paul Winter, on hand. In addition the 
Four Freshmen, Connie Francis, 
Brenda Lee, the Gene Krupa Quartet, 
.lamie Coe, the Topsiders, Meredith 
Wilson and wife also perfoi'med. 


Tom East, KROD-El Paso’s morn- 
ing man, is keeping his listeners on 
their toes with his “Secret Word” 
contest. Each day. East has a secret 
word which is announced the pre- 
vious day on the outlet. When the 
seci'et word is used in his conversa- 
tion, the listener who calls first re- 
ceives a gift. 


When a dog finds his owner 
through radio, that is news. WWDC- 
Washington has been broadcasting 
announcements of missing dogs for 
many years. Usually such requests 
come from the owners. But recently, 
a black male Scottie approached the 
outlet’s Satellite Studio and scratched 
on the door. When Jack Rowzie 
opened the door, the dog promptly 
jumped inside. On checking the col- 
lar, Rowzie found a tag with the 
name “Heidi.” Announcement was 
made that “Heidi” was there trying 
to locate his lost owner. Within 30 
minutes the owner came to the Satel- 
lite Studio. Heidi’s vigorous tail- 
wagging as he left indicated his ap- 
preciation of WWDC’s lost and found 
service. 


An impressive number of “firsts” 
were compiled by WRVC-Philadel- 
phia in the stations’ comprehensive 
coverage of the Hazelton (Pa.) mine 
disaster. The NBC-owned station had 
the first reporter-news camera crew 
on the scene after two of the trapped 
miners were known to be alive; it 
had the first film footage of the 
rescue attempts on the air, both local 
and network, the same evening; it re- 
ceived and aired the first video tape 
of the rescue operation; and was the 
first broadcast news media to main- 
tain a 24-hour vigil at the rescue site. 

A new WNHC-New Haven promo- 
tion which will run every other hour 
is tagged “Almanac.” Questions on a 
variety of subjects will be asked over 


WPTR-Albany morning personality M 
Pat Patterson has returned from his i 
honeymoon at Niagara Falls and 
Toronto. During his absence, he kept , 
his listeners informed of some of his 
activities by frequent taped an- 
nouncements and through WPTR’s « 
music chart, “The Swingin’ ’63 Sound 
Survey,” in which his column, “Pat’s 
Chat,” appears. The survey sheets, a 
weekly report, are available through 
leading record stores. 

The work of the New York City 
Youth Board in combatting juvenile 
delinquency was the subject of “Chal- 
lenge ’63: the Redeemers” on WABC- 
New York from 9:30 to 9:55 PM. The 
program is the last of a three-part 
series on juvenile delinquency in

More On "More'' 

Disk Coverage 

NEW YORK— “More,” the hit ballad 
from the flick “Hondo Cane,” contin- 
ues to nail-down big disk coverage. 

It’s acceptance has led to many 
LP’s being released that carry the 
name of the song for their titles. As 
of last week, an impressive total of 
six albums were on release with 
“More” as their titles. Kai Winding, 
currently making the big singles noise 
on the tune, has one on Verve, fol- 
lowed by a new Clark Terry issue 
on Cameo-Parkway, Steve Allen on 
Dot, Si Zentner on Liberty, Ricky 
Alan on 20th Century-Fox, and The 
Ventures on Dolton. “The “Hondo 
Cane” soundtrack was released on 
United Artists Records. Both the 
Winding & soundtrack LP’s are chart 
items. 

In the singles arena, there have 
been at least 30 decks are available, 
with the range of styles including 
rock-inclined vocals (Vic Dana on 
Dolton), jazz readinngs (Charlie 
Byrd on Riverside), lush instrument- 
als (Clebanoff on Mercury) and vari- 
ous foreign-cut dates. 

“More” and, for that matter, for 
the rest of the “Hondo Cane” score 
in published in the U.S. by Edward 
B. Marks Music. Rubbery’s ad- 
ditional activities on an international 
level include the rights to the sound- 
tracks of such other Italian flicks as 
“814,” “Women of the World” (with 
music by “Cane” writer Riz Or- 
tolani), and “Venere Imperiale,” 
which will be released soon. 

As for serious music, the firm has 
two new works by famed composer 
Roger Sessions: “Sonata for Solo 
Violin,” cut by Hyman Bress, and 
“From My Diary,” recorded by 
pianist Leon Fleisher. 


Glen Gray Dies 

NEW YORK— Glen Gray, whose Casa 
Loma Orchestra was a top in-person, 
disk and radio attraction through the 
thirties and forties, died Fri., April 23 
in Plymouth, Mass at the age of 63. 

In recent years. Gray used original 
Case Loma arrangements in a series 
of LP’s for Capitol. Additionally, 
many of his albums paid tribute to 
famed ork ensembles of the big-band 
era. 

The Casa Loma Orch was formed 
in 1929 as an off-spring of Jean Gold- 
kette’s “Orange Blossoms,” for which 
Gray played the sax. Tag came from 
a Toronto hotel at which the Goldkette 
band was playing at the time. During 
the thirties, the band, which was in- 
corporated, played top dance spots 
around the country and appeared in 
four feature films, including one 
named “Casa Loma Stomp.” 

The corporation was dissolved in 
1942, and Gray continued partial op- 
eration of the ensemble until he re- 
tired in 1950 to Plymouth, Mass. In 
1956, he returned to continue the Casa 
Loma sound on disks. 

Gray was born in Roanoke, 111., 
where he held f. job on the Santa Fe 
railroad, but played the sax during 
off -hours and organized a band called 
Spike’s Jazz Band. He became a mem- 
ber of Goldkette’s band after com- 


! 


t 


pleting studies at the American Con- 
servatory of Music. 

Among the luminaries who worked 
with the Casa Loma ork during its 
heyday were Bix Biederbecke, Mildred 
Bailey, Bobby Hackett, Sonny Dun- 
ham and Pee Wee Hunt. 

Surviving Gray are his wife, 
Marion, and a son.

FCC"s Loevinger Urges 
Tighter Radio-TV Controls 

WASHINGTON — Lee Loevinger, re- 
cently appointed to membership in the 
Federal Clommunications Commission, 
in his first speech as a member of the 
Commission, has recommended the use 
of anti-trust laws to regulate broad- 
casters. 

The new appointee, formerly the 
head of the Justice Department’s anti- 
trust division, said, “The growing 
concentration of control of broadcast- 
ing stations and among all the mass 
media is cause for grave concern.” 

Recommended by Loevinger: The 
tightening of the FCC’s present 
“multiple ownership” rules that would 
likely prevent a TV station owner 
from buying more and would prevent 
newspapers from owning more 
stations; requiring all stations to de- 
vote as much time to news as it does 
to commercials; and for broadcasters 
to institute the formation of their 
own news-gathering facilities to com- 
pete with AP and UPI, which are 
devoted primarily to serving news- 
papers. 

Loevinger, who declared that many 
TV programs are banal, boring and 
bad, will serve under chairman E. Wil- 
liam Henry, both of whom have indi- 
cated they will veer from the Newton 
Minow approach to broadcasting 
regulation. 


4t-h Music Golf Tourney Set 

HOLLYWOOD — The fourth annual

dian Wells Hotel & Country Club on

sisting of Dave Jacobs, Sidney Gold- 
stein and Bob McCluskey reported an 
early indication of a large turnout. 


Max Youngstein Back 
At UA As Indie Producer 

NEW YORK — Max E. Youngstein is 
backed again at United Artists Pic-

ducer. Youngstein, who left a veep 
post at UA last year for solo pro- 
ducing efforts, inked a 3-year pact, 
and has already started to huddle for 
new properties, including efforts by 
Arthur Miller, Sidney Kingsley and 
S. J. Perelman. He has nailed-down 
an original story, “The Well at Ras 
Dega,” by Robert Ruark and Sy Bart- 
lett. At his old post, Youngstein had 
a hand in getting UA a number of 
major box-office successes.

Monkey Business Is Good Business 



CHICAGO — The smiling men in the above pic are all pleased about Major 
Lance’s current Okeh chartrider, “The Monkey Time,” which they all were in- 
volved in. Standing (left to right) are Arthur Grant, the chanter’s manager, 
Carl Davis, Epic-Okeh A&R exec, Major Lance (holding his recently-released 
LP tagged after the single) and Carl Proctor, promo director of Summit 
Records, Okeh’s Windy City distributor. 


Big Names In Cartoon "Ot" 

BOSTON — The voices of a number of 
star performers will be heard in a 
new, full-length animated musical 
film tagged “Return to the Land of 
Oz,” based on the famed “Wizard of 
Oz.” 

Producer of the flick is former Bos- 
ton dee jay Norm Prescott, who has 
just returned from Europe with the 
first rushes of the film, which was 
made under the aegis of Prescott’s 
young indie production firm. 

Of great sentimental interest is the 
choice of the new Dorothy — it’s Liza 
Minnelli, daughter of Judy Garland, 
who played the same role in MGM’s 
classic “The Wizard of Oz,” which 
was made in 1939. 

Others featured in the flick, which 
also contains 15 songs by Sammy 
Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen, are Ethel 
Merman, Danny Thomas, Peter Law- 
ford, Milton Berle, Rise Stevens, Jack 
E. Leonard, Paul Ford, Paul Lynde, 
Herschel Bernard!, Mel Blanc and 
Margaret Hamilton. Latter perfoi-mer 
played the witch in the original “Wiz- 
ard,” but is cast this time around as 
Aunt Em. End titles show the ani- 
mated characters taking curtain calls 
& dissolving into the actual faces of 
those who speak their roles. 

While a cast LP has been completed, 
under the direction of Walter Scharf, 
who scored the music for an 85-piece 
orchestra, no label has been tagged as 
yet to distribute the album. No open- 
ing date is set, but it is hoped that 
the flick will bow at New York’s Radio 
City Music Hall sometime between 
Christmas & Easter. 

“Oz” is Prescott’s second animated 
film. His first, made in Europe is 
“Pinocchio’s Adventure in Outer 
Space,” completed except for scoring, 
and being set for world-wide distri- 
bution. 


Columbia Names Swan 
As L.A. Distrib Mgr. 

HOLLYWOOD — Walter Swan has 
been appointed operations manager 
at Columbia Records’ Los Angeles dis- 
tributorship, succeeding Mert Paul 
who has become manager of Colum- 
bia’s new Minneapolis branch. Swan’s 
appointment is announced by Ted 
Rosenberg, Los Angeles branch man- 
ager. 

The new operations manager is re- 
sponsible to Rosenberg for the inter- 
nal operations of the branch, includ- 
ing supervision of all clerical and 
warehouse staff’s, inventory control, 
order servicing and assisting Paul 
Peppin, credit manager with credit 
control. 

Swan gained five years business ex- 
perience as an assistant manager for 
E. R. Squibb & Son before joining 
Columbia’s distributor organization.

cently concluded a seines of 21 one-

Geared for teen-agers, the show is 
presently being cast, and according to 
Rosalind Ross of the agency’s music

NEW YORK — The Independent Pro-

uted by IPG is “The Golden Hits” Of

guard,” collapsed during a recording 
session in Nashville last week, it was 
announced by label exec Morris Dia- 
mond. 

The young songstress is in the St.

exhaustion stemming from a hectic 
round of promotional visits and per- 
sonal appearances. The lark, just 
prior to the wax session, had ap-

Jim Denny Dies 

Jr' (Continued from page 6) 

Although he had advanced to the 
t - position as head of the accounting 
and systems division at National Life, 
• his first love was the Opry and the 
excitement it stimulated. In 1951 he 
moved to WSM as talent director and 
manager of the Opry, a position 
which he had wanted from the start 
t as a messenger boy. 

I Denny saw a great opportunity in 
' the song publishing business for him- 
self as a result of his close associa- 
tion with the top country and west- 
ern artists. He proceeded to establish 
^ I the Cedarwood Publishing Company 
in 1954 and was firmly entrenched in 
' the business when WSM president, 

I Jack DeWitt, decided that it wasn’t 
quite “cricket” for the Opry manager 
to also be in the music publishing 
business. Unable to convince DeWitt 
that there was really nothing unethi- 
’ cal about the arrangement, Denny 
was subsequently relieved of his po- 
I sition as Opry manager. 

Denny enjoyed telling of the riff 
with WSM and often stated that his 
, dismissal at WSM was the greatest 
r break of his life. He proceeded to 
‘ break up what was considered to be a 
virtual monopoly by WSM of country 
' and western talent. 

Goldie Hill, who is now Mrs. Carl 

0 Smith, was the first artist to join Jim 
) in his new venture, the Jim Denny 
'ir Artist Bureau. 

Artists which are presently man- 
II,.. aged by the bureau are Webb Pierce, 
Hank Snow and his Rainbow Ranch 

■ Boys, Minnie Pearl, Ray Price and 
his Cherokee Cowboys, Carl Smith, 
Kitty Wells, Johnny Wright and his 
Tennessee Mountain Boys, Stonewall 
Jackson, Carl and Pearl Butler, Jim- 

'i my Dickens, Porter Wagoner and his 
*' Wagonmasters, Jean Shepard, Lefty 
Frizzell, Billy Walker, Grandpa Jones, 
George Morgan, Claude Gray, Red 
j Sovine, Roger Miller, Justin Tubb, 
! Carl Belew, The Willis Brothers, Bill 
Phillips, Archie Campbell, Carl Per- 
(. kins, Duke of Paducah, Jack Scott, 
Cousin Jody, Connie Hall, Del Reeves, 
Dottie West, Martha Carson, Harold 
Morrison, and Shirley Ray. 
j While the artist bureau was flour- 
ishing with the boom in country and 
li- western music, the demands for Den- 
ny’s time as head man at Cedarwood 
' Publishing Company became more 
pressing as the staff expanded stead- 
■* ily and overseas offices were estab- 
lished in London, England, and in 
Berlin, Germany. Cedarwood now 
boasts some 48 BMI awards. 

1 Denny broadened his interests in 
the entertainment field by teaming 

■ qj with Webb Pierce to purchase three 
i i radio stations in Georgia. The sta- 
tions are located in Swainsboro 

, (WJAT), Sandersville (WSNT), and 
! in Waynesboro (WBRO). 

’ Evidence of Denny’s position as a 
^ leader in the music industry is il- 
lustrated by the more than 4,000 
bookings handled by the Jim Denny 
Artist Bureau, which grossed some 
fl.5 million in 1962. Cedarwood Pub- 
lishing Company during the same pe- 
’ ’ riod saw 283 songs released on rec- 
ords for a gross of $420,000. 

■ ^ “The country and western music 

industry has lost a great benefactor,” 
stated W. E. “Lucky” Moeller, a part- 
ner in the Jim Denny Artist Bureau 
and longtime friend, when told of 

■ Denny’s death, “No one will ever 
know just how much this great man 
has done for country music. All of us 
in the industry have lost a loyal and

trusted friend. He is gone, but his 
mark will long remain among those 
of us who were fortunate enough to 
have known him and to have worked 
with him.” 

He was a 32nd degree Mason, a 
member of the Shrine, and a lifetime 
charter member and former director 
of the Country Music Association. He 
was a member of the Brentwood 
Methodist Church. 

Surviving him are his wife, Dollie 
Dearman Denny, his mother, Mrs. 
Arch Parker, his sons, James Wil- 
liam Denny and John Everett Denny, 
and a daughter, Linda Gayle Denny. 
Interment was at Mount Olivet Ceme- 
tery in Nashville. 


Eefin Is Cornin' 

(Continued from page 6) 

Reports as to the ethnic background 
of Eefin are varied, but the sound 
supposedly came from a man named 
Uncle Eef who lived in a shack on 
the banks of the Cumberland River. 
Uncle Eef used to amuse himself and 
his friends with his Eefin. Uncle Eef 
was eventually hanged in a willow 
tree along the banks of the Cumber- 
land, still Eefin as the rope tightened 
around his neck. His friends watching 
the execution took up the chant and 
Eefed him into the next world. 

Other labels are vrey much aware 
of Eefin and it is expected there will 
be many more Eefin entries during 
the coming weeks. 


Klayman In To New Deal 

(Continued from page 7) 
owned Ideal Records, another New 
York distrib, and prior to that, was 
an exec with Capitol Records for 15 
years. 

Klayman and Levine stated that 
they “seek to diversify themselves 
into various aspects of the record in- 
dustry.” This is necessary, they said, 
because the disk business is currently 
undergoing many “drastic changes,” 
and that flexibility and foresight are 
essential to maintain growth. 


Feigin Heads Liberty Promo 

(Continued from page 7) 
Imperial Records, which Liberty re- 
cently acquired. 

Feigin duties will cover the Liber- 
ty, Dolton, Imperial & Double L la- 
bels. He began his career in the disk 
business with indie distribs, function- 
ing in sales as well as promotion. 
Prior to his recall to active duty in 
the U.S. Army during the Berlin cri- 
sis of 1961, he traveled the nation for 
two years as national promo director 
of the now defunct Madison label. 
Feigin joined Liberty one year ago 
as eastern promo manager, working 
hand-in-hand with Skaff. Liberty 
credits him with paving the way for 
the opening of its factory-owned 
branch in New Yoi'k. 

Feigin will headquarter in Holly- 
wood, where he arrived last week.

Sfacy Forms New Label 

CHICAGO — Jim Gaylord, prexy of 
Stacy Record Company, in this city, 
has announced the formation of a 
timely new label. 

The new label — Hootenanny — will 
be devoted almost entirely to country 
& western, and all types of American 
folk music, according to Gaylord. 

The record product will be pro- 
duced solely in “true stereo sound,” 
and priced low enough for all mar- 
kets, he said. 

“Since our recent success with A1 
Casey’s “Surfin’ Hootenanny” on our 
Stacy label we were suddenly struck 
with the idea that nothing is more 
popular in this country than Hooten- 
anny music. Therefore, it only seemed 
natural to make this significant 
plunge into the formation of a label 
dedicated to Hootenanny music,” Gay- 
lord explained. 

John Dolan, general manager of 
Stacy, added that, in effect. Hooten- 
anny will produce mainly c&w and 
folk albums, with certain occasional 
singles based on their sales potential. 

The initial release on the Hooten- 
anny label will be issued shortly to 
Stacy’s distributors. 

In another step, Gaylord advised 
last week that Stacy has purchased 
the master of “Someone” by Preston 
Carnes, on the Detroit based Astro 
label, which reportedly has been a 
hot selling record in the Detroit area. 

Subsequently, Gaylord and Dolan 
purchased Asteo, considering the fact 
that Stacy’s national distributor net- 
work will be able to do a strong job 
with Astro’s product. 

“Someone” is being released to the 
trade on the Stacy label. Also, Pres- 
ton Carnes was signed to a new con- 
tract by Stacy.

Chi Distrib Expands 

CHICAGO — Morrie Goldstein, co- 
head _ with Joseph Weiss of World 
Distributors, in this city, have em- 
barked on an expansion program in 
their headquarters, in the heart of 
Chicago’s record row, to meet the 
ever growing demand for records in 
such large retail discount outlets as 
Shoppers’ World, etc. 

Goldstein, a 12 year veteran in the 
record business, stated that World 
Dists. now has four vehicles making 
deliveries throughout the area. 


HOLLYWOOD — The sixth annual 
convention of the National Associa- 
tion of Radio Announcers held at the 
Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles re- 
cently proved to be the most suc- 
cessful convention in the organiza- 
tion’s history with over 500 disk 
jockeys and record industry personnel 
in attendance. 

Rudy Harvey of KGFJ, Los An- 
geles, presided over meetings of the 
executive committee which were con- 
cerned with Fair Employment Prac- 
tices Commission as regards the Ne- 
gro disk jockey. In the meetings, it 
was brought out that attempts to 
unionize in the South had been met 
with threats of dismissal of Negro 
personnel. Resolutions were passed by 
NARA to work with AFTRA to see 
that Negro deejays all over the coun- 
try are a part of AFTRA, which will 
benefit them as well as strengthening 
AFTRA. 

In an important speech, Claude 
McCue, president of the Hollywood 
branch of AFTRA, affirmed AFTRA’s 
objectives of working against discrim- 
ination. Resolutions were also passed 
for a nationwide attempt through 
NARA “for all Negro deejays to be- 
come an integral part of the general 
communications field, serving the en- 
tire community.” The executive com- 
mittee also put into effect a by-law. 
Article 5 # C, which stated that in 
compliance with the national policy, 
the west coast Branch of NARA op- 
poses any form of payola. A final 
meeting of the executive committee 
was held on Monday Aug. 26 at which 
plans were formulated for the com- 
ing year to carry out the goals set 
by the convention. Social events of the 
convention were sponsored by several 
record manufacturers and were high- 
lighted by shows sponsored each night 
of the convention by the Liberty, 
Capitol and Victor labels.

SORD Depending A Lot On 
D.C. Pricing Bill Hearings 

NEW YORK— The eyes of the So- 
ciety of Record Dealers of America 
(SORD) are on Washington, D.C., 
and the day, not far off, when the as- 
sociation will have its say before Rep. 
Orin Harris’ committee hearings on 
a Federal trade bill to allow manufac- 
turers to set minimum prices for their 
goods. 

On Sept. 23, SORD will be repre- 
sented by its prexy Louis Shapiro, 
who will offer wholehearted support 
of the bill. 

“This is the time of ‘breakthrough’ 
for record dealers,” states Shapiro. 
“If that breakthrough is not to be- 
come a breakdown we must make a 
very strong impression on Rep. Orin 
Harris’ committee meeting in Wash- 
ington on Sept. 23.” , 

Shapiro said that SORD considered 
its appearance before the committee 
as the climax of four years of tre- 
mendous effort to win “overdue recog- 
nition of the plight of records dealers 
throughout the nation. If this hear- 
ing does not lead to remedies for the 
condition of retailers, we will all suf- 
fer tragic losses,” warns Shapiro. 

Shapiro’s remarks, which came in a 
policy statement issued last week, also 
emphasized the need for “every deal- 
er, small or large,” to write his Rep- 
resentative and Senators to support 
pricing bills. The statement con- 
cludes : 

“The time has come to face up to 
our responsibilities. We must realize 
that present conditions cannot con- 
tinue much longer if we are to sur- 
vive. The sooner we all band together 
to work out a program of mutual ben- 
efit, the sooner this entire industry 
will prosper. The Society of Record 
Dealers pledges to complete this un- 
finished business, to carry out its re- 
sponsibilities to all members, and to 
continue to draw the attention of the 
Federal Trade Commission to the 
need for prompt solutions to the prob- 
lems affecting this industry.” 


Sam Chase Forms 
IntM Rep Firm 

NEW YORK — Sam Chase, who re- 
cently left his post as editor-in-chief 
of Billboard, has opened a new service 
here for representation of interna- 
tional labels, publishers and talent. 
New operation, which. Chase said, 
embraces several innovations, includ- 
ing public relations, merchandising 
and the arrangement of personal ap- 
pearances, will function as a division 
of Sam Chase Associates, and will co- 
ordinate the activities of labels and 
publishers by negotiating agreements 
for representation on their behalf 
throughout the world. 

Firm will also represent interna- 
tional talent and its management is 
setting up U.S. dates, and will perfom 
a similar function for U.S. talent 
planning treks abroad. Walter Hofer, 
well-known on the international music 
scene, has been retained as counsel 
for the operation. 

In announcing the new services. 
Chase, who formed the firm recently 
upon his resignation from Billboard, 
stated that “the representation of 
American and international compa- 
nies for the placement or acquisition 
of copyrights and masters is, of 
course, an established part of our in- 
dustry. However, in addition to per- 
forming these services, we feel that a 
knowledgable campaign that will clar- 
ify the image of overseas companies 
to the U. S. music-record industry 
must make the products, artists or 
services of such companies better 
known and appreciated, hence more 
desirable and valuable.” 

The sei’vices will function from the 
new headquarters of Sam Chase As- 
sociates at 527 Madison Avenue.

Epic Says It Has 
•, First Folk-Dixie LP 

! NEW YORK — Epic Records has an- 
' nounced the release of “Washington 
Square,” the first recording of a re- 
portedly ever-growing pop music 
trend known among college students 
as Folk-Dixie. 

Joe Sherman produced and wrote 

r 

I arrangements for the single, which 

is called an accurate, professional 
I ^ version of a style of playing that has 

become popular among amateur 
\ groups on college campuses during 

the past two years. Basically, it in- 
volves the use of banjo and guitar 
I and the usual Dixieland complement 

of instruments: trumpet, trombone, 
clarinet and rhythm section. The 
‘ ' melody is carried principally by the 

banjo for two choruses, and then it 
is played by the entire group. 

■ “Washington Square” was shipped 
to Epic’s distributors late last week, 
and strong initial reaction has already 

I been reported in Baltimore, Washing- 

■ ton and Miami. 




Dual Distribution 

(Continued from page 7) 

As one manufacturer put it: “Mass 
r merchandising has had a drastic ef- 
fect on the record business. In some 
major markets a label can do eighty 
to ninety percent of its business 
among some fifty or so large ac- 
, counts. Under these conditions, is it 
good business sense to have a sales 
force that finds itself devoting con- 
siderable time and company money to 
I ~f visiting the outlying smaller accounts 
who altogether may give a firm ten 
;j4 per cent of its volume. Perhaps it 
I makes more sense to cut down on 
your sales staff, have your top sales- 
■ j men visit your fifty key accounts two 
I or three times a week, rather than 

I ; once a week, and appoint, for exam- 
‘ pie, one or two or three key one-stops 
as distributors in the area for the 
smaller accounts.” 

It’s quite obvious that there are 
endless possibilities for the methods 
under which dual distribution may 
function. When and if one company 
^ attempts this, only then will we be 
able to analyze the pros and cons of 
such a step. 

One thing is certain. There have 

I been some radical changes in the in- 
F dustry during the past half year. 
' There have been numerous consolida- 
ji tion moves and a great deal of 
I thought has been given to more logi- 
^ cal and economical methods of distri- 
,! bution during the past twelve 
months. It is also a fact that the rack 
„ jobber and the one stop, as they are 
known today, are a far cry from 
^ what they were only five years ago. 
Although many have been branded 
with tags that were fitting when they 
organized their firms, today, clear-cut 
definitions of many of these same 
people’s functions have become in- 
creasingly difficult to come by. 

No one can guess what these 
^ changing patterns will lead to in the 
coming year. But there is a definite 
undercurrent that we have been feel- 
ing in the past few weeks which 
seems to be saying that in the next 
' six to eight months we may see Dual 
Distribution coming into play in the 
record business via some key manu- 
facturers. 


Carter Gets Added Duties 
At Veejay, Pipalo Upped 

CHICAGO — Randy Wood, newly- 
named president of Vee Jay Records, 
has announced that Calvin Carter, 
A&R head, has taken on additional 
duties as director of the label’s pub- 
lishing activities. Wood added that 
Carter will take-on even further re- 
sponsibilities at the label. In addition. 
Wood announced that Pat Pipalo, 
formerly a promo man for the Vee 
Jay in Los Angeles, will now cover 
the 11 western states. 


Columbia Int'l Changes 

(Continued from page 7) 

Peter Rosaly, who has been named 
manager of Latin-American A&R ac- 
tivities. Rosaly transferred to Colum- 
bia Records from CBS International 
in 1960 as coordinator of Latin- 
American A&R and creative services. 

Shapiro reported that CRI Int’l 
has music publishing divisions al- 
ready active in such countries as 
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cana- 
da, Japan, Mexico and South Africa, 
and his initial program includes the 
development of 14 European opera- 
tions of this type. Shapiro, who’ll 
continue to headquarter in New 
York, leaves for Europe on Sept. 15 
to further the establishment of the 
new activities. Shapiro has been ac- 
tive in music & entertainment since 
1946. He joined Columbia Records as 
coordinator of int’l A&R in 1956, 
after heading a private public rela- 
tions and promotion firm for such 
talents as Frank Sinatra, Mary Mar- 
tin, Mitch Miller, Dinah Shore, 
Benny Goodman, Billy Eckstein and 
others. He was one of the founders 
of the Progressive and Walden music 
companies, and was national promo 
director of Mercury Records and di- 
rector of public relations for the spe- 
cial projects dept, of BMI. 

As an authority on jazz & pop mu- 
sic, he has written for a number of 
publications here and abroad. He was 
New York editor of Down Beat in 
1950, and is the co-author of two pop- 
ular jazz books, “Hear Me Talkin’ to 
Ya,” and “The Jazz Makers.” He is 
currently at work on a history of pop 
music in the U.S. after World War 1. 

In his new post, Stratta will rec- 
ommend records produced by Colum- 
bia for use by affiliated companies, 
with recordings by Columbia’s artists 
with repertoire, language and style 
suitable for the overseas markets. He 
will also recommend repei’toire pro- 
duced by affiliated companies in the 
U.S. In addition, Stratta will assist 
in maintaining artists’ relations and 
liaisons with creative services on 
overseas products to be released in 
the U.S. 

As Latin-American product A&R 
head, Rosaly will also recommend 
disks produced by Columbia Int’l for 
use by affiliated Latin-American com- 
panies. He will continue to be respon- 
sible for A&R, creative services, mer- 
chandising and promo activities re- 
lating to the EX series, Columbia’s 
catalog of Latin-American diskings. 
In addition, Rosaly will continue to 
record Latin-American artists and 
ensembles in the U.S., and to main- 
tain a liaison with the Miami Rec- 
ords Co., licensee for Columbia Int’l 
in the U.S. 


Ace Ends Darf- Tie-Up,

JACKSON, MISS.— Ace Records has 
ended its distrib agreement with 
Ewart Abner’s Chicago-based com- 
pany, Dart Record Sales, national dis- 
ti’ib for a number of labels. 

As announced by John Vincent, 
president of Ace, the diskery felt that 
by handling its own distribution it 
will “get far better coverage and 
greater sales through personal con- 
tact with our distributors.” Vincent 
said that Ace was currently making 
arrangements with distribs for ex- 
clusive handling of Ace product. 

Vincent also announced that the 
label is coming out with a new line 
of budget albums on its Teem label 
plus package deals on Ace.

Now It's: 

Top 100 Singles 
(Alphabetized) 

NEW YORK— Readers will find on 
page 38 of this week’s issue a new 
feature called “Top 100 Singles (Al- 
phabetized).” This new reference is, 
in a sense, an otf-shoot of the “Top 
100 Publishers” list which Cash Box 
recently incorporated into the Top 100 
card next to their songs. It has been 
brought to the attention of Cash Box 
that the old “Top 100 Publishers” 
listing was used extensively for non- 
publishing reasons by retailers and 
radio-station personnel, who used it 
as a handy guide to locate Top 100 
titles. 

“Top 100 Singles (Alphabetized)” 
not only includes titles, but their cur- 
rent positions on the singles chart 
and notations indicating a red-bullet 
jump. Thus, by attaching the new 
feature to the Top 100, a convenient 
all-purpose guide is readily at hand. 

Publisher and clearing house info 
remains on the Top 100 chart.

Dcsrt Sales 
1st Singles 

r'/!lOAnO — E. G. Abner, Jr., presi- 
fb r.l c'i' Dart Record Sales Company, 
^veek of the first two singles issued 
tni.s ciry, announced the release last 
by fr.e new national record distoibu- 
ting: organization. The disks were 
.‘\&R’ed by Dart’s Bill “Bunky” Shep- 
pard, under the new Constellation 
label. 

They are: “Ocean Full Of Tears” 
by Frankie Ford and “He’s Back 
Again” by Huey Smith & The Clowns, 
both attractions which have had 
previous Top 100 entries. 

Furthermore, Abner advised that 
Sheppard, who manages Gene Chan- 
dler, is prepping the songster for a 
recording date set up for sometime 
next week. It will be Chandler’s ini- 
tial outing under the Constellation 
banner. Chandler’s current release — 
“Man’s Temptation,” on the Vee Jay 
label — is listed on the Cash Box Top 
100 chart. 

Shepard also held a recording ses- 
sion last week with Bobby Miller, a 
new Constellation artist. 

Dart Record Sales Co. is presently 
developing an album product through 
the joint efforts of Dart execs and 
Dave Hubert and Mike Maloney, of 
Horizon and In Records. Two albums 
of the Hootenanny variety are sched- 
uled for immediate release on the In 
Records label. 

In addition to Constellation, Dart 
Sales handles national distribution for 
the Avanti and Seaborn labels. 

Art Sheridan, secretary of Dart 
Record Sales, and director of Dart 
International, has been busily en- 
gaged in setting up a network of 
foreign distribution on the product 
now available. He reports very satis- 
factory results in that dii’ection. 

Abner stated, in conclusion, that all 
phases of the Dart Record Sales com- 
plex are developing well, and that the 
outlook for the approaching Fall sea- 
son saleswise is “very optimistic.”

Capitol's Stabilization Move 

(Continued fi’om page 6) 
maintaining inventory control, their 
problems of having unsalable Capitol 
inventory should be minimal,” Tal- 
lant said. 

Under the BSP plan, CRDC guar- 
antees to exchange a set quantity 
(anywhere from two LP’s to 100, de- 
pending on the particular album) of 
every disk and tape album in the 
Capitol and Angel catalogs. 

In describing the basic stock pro- 
tection plan, Tallant said: 

“We devised BSP in 1961 to pre- 
vent any CRDC customer from being 
overloaded on any album, and more 
important, to give our customers in- 
creased inventory turn and increased 
profits. In short, BSP was designed to 
remove fi’om stock those albums which 
did not sell well and to put into stock, 
in proper quantity, those albums 
which do sell well. 

“For instance, if the BSP on album 
X is two, our salesman will put in 
two. A week later, when he makes his 
next call, if that album has sold one 
copy, he will add another. Thus, the 
dealer, providing he allows our sales- 
man to aid him in inventory control, 
should not have Capitol albums in 
stock which he cannot exchange. 

“In the two years BSP has been in 
existence, those dealers who have co- 
operated with us say it solves their 
inventory and overstock problems,” 
Tallant added. 

“The 10 per cent exchange privi- 
lege,” Tallant continued, “is designed 
to help dealers who have bought 
quantities beyond the protection of- 
fered by BSP.” The 10 per cent plan, 
which is based on net purchases (aft- 
er discounts, etc.) is extended three 
times a year, covering the four month 
periods January through April, May 
through August and September 
through December. 

Since the elimination of the five 
per cent in-lieu cash discount falls 
in the middle of an exchange period, 
CRDC will issue authorization for 
exchange forms to cover the five- 
month period May 1 through Septem- 
ber 30. The subsequent exchange au- 
thorization will cover the three-month 
period October 1 through December 
31. Beginning January 1, the normal 
four-month periods will be resumed. 


Capitol Re-Pacts Clark 



HOLLYWOOD — With Roy Clark’s 
deck of “The Tip Of My Fingers” 
clicking in both the pop and country 
departments, Capitol tore up the 
young singer-guitarist’s contract and 
brought him into the Capitol Tower 
in Hollywood last week to sign a 
new, long-term pact. Ken Nelson, ex- 
ecutive A&R producer for the label 
looks on. The success of the Clark’s 
single resulted in an album, of the 
same title, which has just been re- 
leased. 


Columbia To Close 
Pressing Facilities At 
Bridgeport; Adm. 

Staff To Remain 

NEW YORK — Columbia Records will 
cease operating its pressing facilities 
at its plant in Bridgeport, Conn, 
around the new year, Cash Box 
learned last week. 

Move, it was pointed out by Ken 
Rain, Columbia’s labor & personnel 
director, does not involve the plant’s 
administrative staff, whose sphere 
covers the entire nation. There is an 
almost even split between adminis- 
trative & production personnel at the 
plant, which totals 650 employees. 
Rain said that the operation of the 
plant had become “uneconomical.” 

According to Rain, Columbia will 
give production employees the oppor- 
tunity to relocate to other Columbia 
pressing plants. These include opera- 
tions in Pitman, N.J., Terre Haute, 
Ind. and Los Angeles. An additional 
west coast facility is currently being 
built. 

The Bridgeport plant, which does 
the smallest business of all of the 
label’s pressing facilities, is housed 
in a four-story building which covers 
a full block. Building was acquired 
by the Columbia Broadcasting Sys- 
tem, parent company of Columbia, in 
1938. 


Bill O'Brien Heads 
Promo Department 
At Philips Records 

CHICAGO — Bill O’Brien assumes the 
post of national promotion manager 
of Philips Records this week, accord- 
ing to Lou Simon, sales topper. 

O’Brien, who’ll headquarter at the 
diskery’s main offices in Chicago, 
comes from Boston, where he served 
as promo manager for Dale Enter- 
prises, the large indie distrib. He also 
did broadcasting work for eleven 
years in both the U.S. and Canada. 


Carp Nemed Capitol VP; 
Hardy Elected Treasurer 

(Continued from page 7) 

Hardy will report directly to Wal- 
lichs. 

A graduate of the School of Juris- 
prudence of the University of Cali- 
fornia (Berkeley), Carp joined Capi- 
tol in January, 1949, as an attorney. 
Four years later he was promoted to 
head of the legal department and in 
1956 was made Assistant Counsel. In 
1959 he became associate counsel and 
in March, 1960, was promoted to 
Counsel. Carp has been secretary of 
Canitol since Dec., 1955. 

For the past six months. Hardy 
has been national purchasing Admin- 
istrator for Capitol. He joined the 
company in 1946 as controller of its 
main plant in Scranton, Pa. He was 
named manager of that facility in 
March, 1948, and the following year 
was appointed national plant man- 
ager. In 1962, he was promoted to 
national manager of record manufac- 
turing. 

Announcement of the election of 
Carp and Hardy followed by two 
days the disclosure that Voyle Gil- 
more and Francis M. Scott III had 
been elected vice presidents of A & R 
and business affairs, respectively. 
(See separate story). 

The election of Carp gives CRI a 
total of five vice presidents. In addi- 
tion to Gilmore and Scott, the others 
are Lloyd Dunn, international, and 
George Jones, manufacturing and en- 
gineering. 


Chips Adds 4 Labels 

PHILADELPHIA — Chips Distribu- 
ting, this city, has added four labels 
for representation in its area. Ap- 
pointments, part of general manager 
A1 Rosenthal’s expansion plans, in- 
volve the Hickory, Sue, Symbol and 
Gold labels. 

Rosenthal emphasized that the re- 
cent acquisition of Chips by Cameo/ 
Parkway Records in no way affects 
the indie distrib status of Chips. 
Other labels handled by the distrib 
include Cameo-Parkway, Vee Jay, 
Philips, Motown, Swan, Disneyland, 
Sar, Era and Fraternity.

primary responsibilities in the areas 
of profit analysis, contract negotia- 
tion and administration, music licens- 
ing, and Capitol’s music publishing 
activities. 

With the promotion of Gilmore and 
Scott, Livingston now has three vice 
presidents under him. The other is 
Lloyd Dunn, VP, International. 
George Jones, manufacturing and en- 
gineering VP, reports to Glenn E. 
Wallichs, Capitol’s chairman of the 
board and chief executive officer. 

Gilmore’s promotion to Vice Presi- 
dency comes near the end of his 
eighteenth year with Capitol. He 
joined Capitol in October, 1945, as a 
salesman in San Francisco. He was 
promoted to San Francisco sales 
manager in 1946 and to Los Angeles 
sales manager in 1949. In March, 
1951, he was made a producer. 

During his 12 years as an A & R 
man, Gilmore has produced record- 
ings by some of the top artists in the 
business, including Judy Garland, 
Frank Sinatra, The Four Freshmen, 
The Four Preps and A1 Martino. Gil- 
more also has produced, and will con- 
tinue to produce, every recording by 
The Kingston Trio. 

In addition to his duties as an ex- 
ecutive producer in the A&R de- 
partment, Gilmore for the past year 
has been in complete charge of Capi- 
tol’s entire single-record operation. 
Under Gilmore’s direction, Capitol 
experienced its biggest sales volume 
in single records during that year 
than at any time since 1957. 

Scott brings to his post of vice 
president, business affairs, a combi- 
nation of business and musical expe- 
rience. He holds a B.A. degree in 
Economics and a Master of Business 
Administration from Stanford Uni- 
versity and also has made a number 
of albums for Capitol with his own 
orchestra. 

After receiving his MBA from 
Stanford in 1947, Scott came to Los 
Angeles where he worked as an ar- 
ranger for a year before joining Cap- 
itol Records as a member of the 
A&R staff. 

He subsequently held the jobs of 
assistant director of A & R, director 
of albums, and director of classics. In 
Jan., 1962, Livingston appointed 
Scott to head-up Capitol’s business 
affairs dept., a post he has held until 
his current promotion.

i; Checker Tour Abroad 
li Termed Huge Success 

s I NEW YORK — Chubby Checker is 
■ :• twistin’ & rockin’ his way through 
’ ’ Ireland & the Continent with a finan- 
'I cial bang, promoters of the tour have 
I reported. 

:j The tour began on July 19 and will 
continue until September 8. 

!; Checker’s first engagements were 
H in Ireland, where he was booked for 
' two shows in two different cities for 
14 consecutive days. Although plans 
originally called for the performances 
to be held in theatres, the demand for 
i tickets was so great that all of the 
' shows were staged in dance halls, 
with seating capacities of 3,500- 
; 4,000. There were turn-away crowds 

I in each city. 

Following Ireland, Checker next 
^ performed at the Star Club, Ham- 
burg, Germany, the largest night club 
on the Continent. It has a seating 
capacity of 1,800. Checker played two 
shows for two days. By permitting 
standees in the aisles and around the 
club, the management squeezed in be- 
teen 2,500 to 3,000 patrons per per- 
formance. There was also a complete 
I turnover of the audience for each 
? show. At the end of the two-day 
stand the management announced 
I that Checker had surpassed the rec- 
;; ords previously held by Ray Charles 
and Fats Domino. 

j! This engagement was followed by 
two shows in the Opera House in 
ii: Scheveningen, Holland, a suburb of 
The Hague. Each show was a sellout, 

I'j with the house having a capacity of 
' 2,800. 

i From August 13 to 18, Checker 
If toured Sweden, playing Malmo, Kris- 
j tianstad, Stockholm, Fahn, Karlstad, 
Karlskoga, Lundsvall and Hudeksvall. 
With the exception of Stockholm, all 
i shows were played in amphitheatres 
located in the city parks, and the at- 
tendances averaged between 4,000 and 
8,000 people. In Stockholm, the show 
was staged in an enclosed arena with 
* a seating capacity of 10,000. Because 
it was completely sold out, arrange- 
‘ ments were made for the show to be 
video-taped for presentation on the 
Swedish TV network at a later date. 

Checker is scheduled to return to 
the U.S. in the middle of September. 


A King Among Queens 


Columbia's Harberf To 
Write Lido de Paris Show 

HOLLYWOOD — Jim Harbert, A&R 
producer at Columbia Records, is an 
American in Paris with a special mis- 
sion: he’s the first American chosen 
to write the spectacular show by the 
famed Lido de Paris. 

Harbert and his wife Charlene de- 
parted last week (Aug. 25) for five 
weeks in Paris where he will write 
the original music and lyrics for the 
revue. 

In the Lido’s 50-year history it has 
never had an American composer. 
Harbert replaces the two veteran 
French composers who have just left 
the show. 

After his Paris stay, Harbert will 
spend four weeks in Las Vegas re- 
hearsing the show for its October 23 
opening at the Stardust Hotel. Colum- 
bia has given the A&R man a special 
nine week leave of absence to com- 
plete the project. 

The composer was signed for the 
Lido show by its veteran American 
producer-director Donn Arden. For 
the past five years Hai-bert has been 
writing original show material for 
Arden’s shows at the Desert Inn in 
Vegas on a freelance basis. 

When Arden, who has produced 
shows in major bistros around the 
world, heard that his two French 
composers, Jean Pierre Landreau and 
Henri Betti were leaving, he sought 
a replacement quickly. He was well 
into six month’s planning for the Lido 
show when he asked Harbert if he 
could write a foreign revue. 

Harbert has written material for 
such luminaries as Phil Harris, Louis 
Prima, Keely Smith, Yvonne De Carlo 
and Danny Kaye. An avid song writer, 
he has had material recorded by Frank 
Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Nancy 
Wilson, Johnny Desmond and Jack 
Jones. 

The show Harbert will be working 
on is titled “Bravo,” will cost $750,- 
000 to produce, have a cast of 65 per- 
sons and will be composed of five 
production numbers within eight acts. 

Harbert will have to write music to 
fit these different time periods in 
which the productions are set, in ad- 
dition to all incidental music to keep 
the show moving. “The music has to 
appeal to American audiences,” Har- 
bert interjected, “while retaining a 
European continental flavor.” 



NEW YORK — Composer Bernie 
^ Wayne, currently clicking with “Blue 
Velvet” by Bobby Vinton (Epic) and 
“Dum Dum Dee Dum” by Johnny 
Cymbal (Kapp), is flanked by two 
lovely Miss Americas, Marilyn Van 
Derbur (left), and the present title- 
holder Jacquelin Mayer. Wayne also 
wrote the Miss America theme. 


Piedmont Starts Folk 
Build-Up With Hurt LP 

ARLINGTON, VA. — Piedmont Rec- 
ords, a youthful diskery, is on its way 
towards building an “extensive” cata- 
log of country blues-folk music with 
an LP by Mississippi John Hurt, who 
has been likened to the legendary 
Leadbelly. 

The label, a division of Music Re- 
search, Inc., said that in the 2(4 
weeks that the disk has been avail- 
able, the first pressing has nearly 
been exhausted, and distribs are plac- 
ing heavy re-orders. The performer 
recently completed a four-week en- 
gagement at Washington’s Ontario 
Place, was featured at the Newport 
Folk Festival and will appear at this 
week’s Philadelphia Folk Festival 
(Sept. 6-8). 

Piedmont is located at 2023 N. 
Woodstock St. in Arlington. 


Barbra Goes West 



HOLLYWOOD — Barbra Streisand, from New York and the LP charts, re- 
cently opened for the first time at Hollywood’s Cocoanut Grove. For the oc- 
casion, Columbia’s L.A. distrib hosted a disk jockey-dealer party which filled 
an entire section of the huge room. Among the many show biz names who 
came to see Barbra perform was actress Natalie Wood, shown with Barbra 
(left) in the above photo. The performer sang songs from her two LP’s, the 
latest of which, “The Second Barbra Sti’eisand Album,” has just been released. 
Barbra’s label mate Tony Bennett also came to the opening. 

Amy-Mala Handling Line 
Of Story LP's For Kidd ies 

NEW YORK — Amy-Mala Records is

BULLSEYE 


‘ I AIN’T COMIN’ HOME TONIGHT” (1:47) [Tree BMI— Miller] 
“ANOTHER BRIDGE TO BURN” (2:54) [Pamper BMI— Howard] 
“LITTLE” JIMMY DICKENS (Columbia 42845) 

“Little” Jimmy Dickens seems sure to garner plenty coin with rousing 
item tabbed “I Ain’t Cornin’ Home Tonight.” The side is an infectious, 
bluegrass-flavored novelty with an effective hoedown-styled chorus back- 
ing. Watch it move. “Another Bridge To Burn” is a melodic shuffle-beat 
lament with some real pretty lyrics. 


“NEVER NEVER LAND” (2:15) [Pamper BMI — Lewis, Howard] 

“I JUST SLIPPED YOUR MIND” (2:41) 

[Glad BMI — Burns, Rhodes, Mullinx] 

SONNY BURNS (United Artists 634) 

Sonny Burns could have a fast chart appearance with this ultra-com- 
mercial new UA outing tabbed “Never Never Land.” The tune is a fast- 
moving, romantic novelty with a spinnable, contagious melody. The top- 
drawer flip, “I Just Slipped Your Mind,” a tradition-oriented bluegrass- 
styled lament. 


“CALL ME MR. BROWN” (2:26) [Le Jean BMI— Miller] 

“THIS OLD BROKEN HEART” (2:07) 

[Le Jean BMI — Miller, McDonald] 

SKEETS MCDONALD (Columbia 42807) 

Skeets McDonald has been cold for quite a while but he can finally 
bi-eak through again with this new Columbia release called “Call Me 
Mr. Brown.” The tune is a medium-paced, bluegrass-flavored opus with 
a delightful warm melody. “This Old Broken Heart” is a traditional 
chorus-backed remorse-packed affair. Also merits a close look. 


“I WISH I WAS A SINGLE GIRL AGAIN” (2:20) 

[Pamper BMI — Howard] 

“THE SADDEST PART OF ALL” (2:55) [Pamper BMI— Forshee] 
JAN HOWARD (Capitol 5035) 

Jan Howard has had hits in the past and she can do it again with this 
power-packed newie tagged “I Wish I Was A Single Girl Again.” The 
tune is a high-spirited, chorus-backed affair in which she tells about the 
advantages of single life. On “The Saddest Part Of All” the songstress 
offers a plantive, slow-moving romantic weeper. 


GOLDIE HILL (Decca 31535) 

(B-h) “STILL WATCHING YOU” 
(2:28) [Cedarwood BMI — 
Wilkin, Burch] The lark could spark 
potent sales reaction with this top- 
flight, easy-going, chorus-backed pop- 
styled lament. Loads of potential 
here. 

(B-h) “CLOSER” (2:12) [Cedar- 
wood BMI — Walker, Cole- 
man] Quick-paced, folkish ditty with 
a warm, infectious beat. 


JEAN PRUETT (RCA Victor 8232) 

(B-f) “LITTLE BLACK BOOK” 
(2:15) [Stephonic BMI — 
Feith] Newcomer Jean Pruett seems 
sure to make a name for herself with 
this top-drawer, chorus-backed opus 
with an infectious gospel-styled re- 
peating riff. Could be big. 

(B) “THE THINGS I DON’T 
KNOW” (2:29) [Marty’s 
BMI — Pruett] Medium-paced tale of 
heartbreak sold with authority by the 
lark. 


AUTRY INMAN (Sims 140) 

(B-h) “BIG SAM” (2:12) [English 
BMI — Inman] Autry Inman 
has a good chance of grabing some 
fast loot with this rousing, uptempo, 
chorus-backed folkish affair. Spinners 
should come out in droves for the 
side. 

(B-h) “MY WORD” (2:46) [English 
BMI — Inman] Tender, slow- 
moving lament essayed with verve 
and poise by Inman. 


LARRY BUTLER (Allstar 7295) 

(B) “I LOVE YOU BABY” 
(1:50) [Glad BMI — Butler, 
Paul] Larry Butler can create plenty 
of deejay interest with this high- 
powered, extremely fast-moving 
country ballad with some effective, 
raunchy guitar sounds. 

(B) “ECHOES FADE AND DIE” 
(2:22) [Allstar ASCAP— But- 
ler, Chandler] Slow-moving, dual- 
track sentimental hillbilly tear-jerker.

Great Britain's Best Seliers 



As a result of a long term contract recently signed with Ariola Sonopress 
GmbH of Germany, Oriole Records has acquired the U.K. manufacturing and 
distribution rights of a major classical repertoire. 

Material released by Ariola on the Eurodisc label will be issued here under 
the new Oriole-Eurodisc trademark. 

The first two LP’s in this category scheduled for September are Mozart’s 
Symphony No. 39 and Clarinet Concerto by Karl Dorr with the Bamberg Sym- 
phony Orchestra under Ferdinand Leitner and Haydn’s Cello Concerto coupled 
wath Boccherini’s Cello Concerto by Andre Navarro and the Salzburg Mozart- 
eum Orchestra conducted by Bernard Baumgartner. 

Other Ariola recordings, both classical and light, will be released here on the 
lower priced Realm label. First releases also scheduled for September, com- 
prise two LP’s, Dvorak’s ‘New World’ Symphony and Grieg’s Piano Concerto 
and Peer Gynt Suites 1/2. 

As usual at this time of year with John Citizen spending his time and money 
on vacation, manufacturers are busy laying plans for the Autumn push. Sales 
conferences and final bx-iefings are the oi-der of the day. 

The Philips Records annual sales confei’ence featured a complete presentation 
of the company’s new sales and max-keting policy inaugurated by the newly 
appointed sales manager Darcy Glover. A slide and tape preview of the fall 
releases included an impressive line-up of CBS recordings. Among them a two 
album pack “Dave Brubeck at Carnegie Hall” and the “Steve and Eydie At The 
Movies” LP . . . The Lawrence and Gorme team are currently enjoying phenom- 
enal sales with “I Want To Stay Here” after only a week on release. Covers 
by Miki & Griff on Pye and Carol Deene on M.H.V. 

Pye Records 4th Annual Sales Conference which took place recently was 
attended by well over 50 area managers. Van Representatives and Supervisors 
from all over Gt Britain and Ireland. Highlight of the dinner and dance which 
climaxed the conference was the presentation, by sales manager Tom Gran- 
tham, on behalf of the entire sales foxre, of a silver desk set to Pye’s managing 
director Louis Benjamin. 

Bobby Weiss, intexmational director of Warner Brothers Records, in London 
for a special film and stereo tape presentation of the label’s LP product sched- 
uled for Novembex’-January release. The preview, attended by executives of 
the Decca Record Company, the label’s British licensees, was followed by a 
luncheon at the Carlton Towers Hotel. Before leaving London to continue the 
promotional campaign in Holland, France and Switzerland, Weiss had meet- 
ings with Louis Benjamin of Pye Records, which handles Reprise in this 
country. 

Coincidental with the first visit to Bx’itain of America’s 15 year old chart 
topper Little Peggy March, Decca issued her latest single “Hello Heartache, 
Goodbye Love” on RCA, published by Planetary Nom. A strong line-up of 
Radio & T.V. dates will doubtless popularize the teenage wonder in this coun- 
try and maybe win her the chart honors which her first disk “I Will Follow 
Him” failed to achieve here. The star will also make a tour of Gex’many. 

Ace composer Johnny Worth has just wx-itten his first instrumental “Apple- 
jack” recorded by Jet Harris and Tony Meehan for Decca and published by 
Essex Music. Same pubbery has “Moonstrike” from the BBC TV series of the 
same name, waxed by Ron Goodwin on Parlophone. 

As “Christine” continues to notch up the biggest singles sales in the life of 
Ember Recox-ds, the label’s boss Jeff Kruger extends his satix’ical scope to the 
LP field. This week sees the release of “Fool Britannia,” a 12" LP recently 
waxed in New York by British contingent Peter Sellers, Daniel Massey & Joan 
Collins with Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse, who are also responsible for 
writing the 15 satirically topical tracks. 

Arrangements have been concluded with Feuer and Martin to present Lionel 
Bart’s epic inusical“Blitz” on Broadway next year in time for the World’s Fair. 
The production which will cost around $750,000 will be in the hands of Artlxur 
Lewis, whose past successes include ’’Guys and Dolls,” “Can-Can” and “How 
To Succeed . . . .” “Blitz” closes its London run in September this year while 
Bart’s smash hit “Oliver” continues to dx-aw packed houses on both sides of 
the Atlantic. 

Several top A & R Managers travelled North to Manchester this week as 
gjiests of publisher Robert Melliii for the out of town woxdd premiere of Jerry 
Schafer’s “Go For Your Gun,” a new American musical by Max Showalter. 
The show which stars Emmaline Henry, Lester James and Larry Chance 
reaches London in October. 

American independent A & R team Sheldon Talmy and Mike Stone working 
with Decca and the K.P.M. publishing group are currently in Los Angeles for 
meetings with Warner Bros., Capitol, Reprise and Liberty. Before leaving Lon- 
don they heard that their latest recording by The Bachelors, “Whispex’ing,” 
had entered the Top 30. Talmy & Stone produced the group’s earlier hit “Char- 
maine.” They also recorded “Beachcomber” by Wayne Gibson & The Dynamic 
Sounds on Decca. 

Decca chairman Sir Edward Lewis hosted a luncheon recently at Decca 
House to mark the Diamond Jubilee in the record business of S. J. Avidon, one 
time director of the company. Besides being presented with a silver salver in- 
scribed by all the guests at the lunch, Avidon received over seventy congratu- 
Is^ory cables from record men all over the world. 

_ :To tie in with the holiday season Deutsche Grammophon (Gt Britain) Ltd 
is running a promotional campaign ‘Channel Crossing’ to encourage dealers to 
feature special displays of the many continental records issued on the Polydor 
label. Actually recorded abroad the disks make ideal souvenirs for the tlxou- 
s^nds of holiday makers returning from the sun drenched shores of Prance, 
Spain, Italy, etc. 

; Disk stars feature prominently in “Hulabaloo,” a new Autumn series to be 
launched by ABC TV on September 28, co-produced by and starring British 
Folk singer Rory McEweii. Artists already booked to appear include Dominic 
Behan (brother of playright Brendan), Columbia recording star Carolyn Hes- 
ter from Texas, The Manhattan Brothers from South Africa, The Clancey 
Brothers and Tommy Makem together with the Ian Campbell Folk Group, sup- 
ported by Cyril Davies R/B All Stars with Long John Baldry & The Velvettes. 

Tommy Quickly, first solo artist from Liverpool to be signed by Impresario. 
Brian Epstein makes his bow on the Piccadilly label with “Tip Of My Tongue.” 
Published by Northern Songs. 

Pye released three fast climbing hits for the American Top 100. “If I Had 
A Hammer” by Trini Lopez on Reprise, “Hey Girl” by Freddie Scott on Colpix 
and “Surfin’ Hootenanny” by A1 Casey on Pye International. 

Latest single by Jimmy Justice on Pye is his own composition “You’re Gonna 
Need My Lovin’.” Jimmy has just returned from Frankfurt, where he cut two 
singles in German for release by Deutsche Vogue. 

Dick Rising, newly appointed manager of European Affairs for Capitol 
Records, in London for discussions with E.M.I. exectutives. Rising is taking up 
residence in Europe and will represent Capitol internationally, based in Frank- 
furt.

Cash Box — September 7, 1963 International Section 



After the gi’eat hit obtained by The Clevers, Brazilian teenage group, 
with the single “El Relicario,” Continental Records released an LP entitled 
“Encontro Com The Clevers” (Meet The Clevers) on which they play several 
current hits, such as: “A Swingin’ Safari,” “Afrika,” “Gandy Dancer,” and 
many others. The five boys who form the combo are: Antonio Rosas Sanchez 
(tenor-sax); Luiz Franco Tomaz (drums); Domingos Orlando (guitar); Wal- 
demar Mozena (Guitar) and Dermeval Rodrigues (bass). 

Chantecler Records, a division of Cassio Muniz S/A, commemoi-ated on 
August 16, its fifth anniversary. In only five years, the label did a lot in 
the industrial and commercial fields. Now, Chantecler is among: the most 
popular record companies of Brazil and has a large number of hits, created 
by its exclusive artists, among them: Edith Veiga, Martha Mendonca, Claudio 
de Barros, Teixeirinha, The Jet Black’s, Renato Guimaraes, Leila Silva, Waldik 
Soriano, Luiz Bordon, Wilson Miranda, Idalina de Oliveira, Mauricy Moura, 
and others. Recently, Chantecler signed a contract with Ricordi Italiana, under 
which terms the disks of that famous European company, will be pressed and 
distributed here by this successful Brazilian diskery. T^e congratulations of 
Cash Box to Chantecler on its fifth anniversary. 

Two new albums under Chantecler label are now in the retail stores: the 
third album of The Jet Black’s called “Other Famous Twists,” in which the 
Brazilian twist group plays “Peter Gunn,” “Failin’,” “Riders In The Sky,” 
“Bobbie,” and other teenage hits; and an LP with the guitar player Paulo 
Barreiros, entitled “Um Violeo Em Duas Epocas” (A Guitar In Two Eras), 
featuring hits of the past and present done by this excellent soloist. 

Maurice Chevalier, the dean of the French artists, was in Sao Paulo 
briefly. He’s being presented in Theater and TV shows with enormous success. 

RGE released a series of new LP’s, with three deserving special mention: 
which one is “0 Orgao Que Canta Sambas” (The Organ That Sings The 
Samba) with Ely Arcoverde. The second volume will be, without any doubt, 
a great hit. Ely plays the organ with a unique style, making it “sing” the 
words of the songs. “Cangao Do Nosso Amor” (Song Of Our Love) fea- 
tures Miltinho, a consistent record seller around here. With arrangements by 
Nelsinho, Miltinho reads some of the most beautiful Brazilian sambas, by 
the leading domestic composers. And finally, there’s “Violinos No Samba” No. 
2- — classical music in samba rhythm, with Nelsinho and His Orchestra. RGE 
also waxed a single with Antonio Prieto, the romantic songster from Chile.

ARGENTINA 



One of the practices that don’t really help the development of the interna- 
tional music business is the “bidding” one, and a recent case has caused many 
comments in Buenos Aires. It happens this way: if an Argentine publisher 
(and we suppose this happens also in other countries) wants to get the rights 
to a certain tune, he writes the original publisher and offers a certain amount 
for the song. The owner accepts, but delays the signing of the contracts. In 
the meantime, he gets in touch with other pubberies and tries to get a better 
offer; if he receives it, he sells the tune to the highest bidder; if not, he always 
has the basic offer. 

In the case of Argentina, the trouble with this type of practice is that since 
there are relatively few publishers and somehow everybody knows what his 
neighbor is doing, such a thing is quickly discovered. Apart from being 
unethical, “bidding” affects very much the original publishers, since confidence 
in them is lost, thus preventing them from earning more money from other 
tunes from their catalog just because they wanted to get a couple of hundred 
more dollars from one title. What the people in the smaller countries need 
is better facilities to work European and American tunes, to be able to widen 
their catalogs and, through much bigger quantity, make better business and, 
consequently, pay more royalties, which is what everybody wants. 

Public teaching of the English language through radio and TV has been 
widely discussed and tried in many countries, and Argentina is no exception 
to the rule. But there is one interesting case: Professor Danny, who has been 
teaching English with success through LR4 Radio Splendid for more than 7 
years, having completed 750 programs. The title of the program is “Learning 
English with Professor Danny”, and has been also aired on TV Channel 7. 
Danny plans now to widen his activities and exchange ideas with radio 
teachers of other countries. 

Roberto Yanes, one of the top stars in Argentina and a big name in melodic 
singing, is fulfilling a contract at King’s, the number one night club in Buenos 
Aires. A few days ago Yanes offered a party to the press and disk jockeys 
at the same King’s, announcing he will marry Elsa Soto soon. Among other 
Yanes’ friends present at the party was Douglas Taylor, Commei’cial Director 
of Discos CBS, the singer’s label. 

News from Music Hall: Julio Molina Cabral, who’s currently riding the 
charts via “Rio Manso,” has recorded two tangos, something new for him 
since he has been in the folk music field up to now. The titles are “Lo Que 
Vendra”, penned by modern tango leader Astor Piazzolla, and old standard 
“Caminito.” Rodolfo Biagi, another MH artist, is recording several new tunes 
with his new singer, Jose Almagro. The diskei-y is now working on the release 
of “Extra Musical,” a new selection LP by pop artists like Los Santos, Los 
Nocturnos, Siro San Roman and Los Caucanos, with titles such as “Rio Man- 
so,” “Uno de Tantos” and “Cuandro Brilla La Luna.” 

RCA seems to have a hit in hands with the Chico Novarro recording of 
“El Camaleon,” which is receiving heavy radio & TV promotion, and has al- 
ready entered the charts. The record is b/w by “Pagina 10,” another local 
product. Other RCA release is the original version of “Cuando Brilla la Luna,” 
by Los Hermanos Rigual, coupled with “Desdemona,” and a tango music album 
with big names Juan D’Arienzo, Anibal Troilo and Carlos D’Agostino: 
“Yo Te Canto Buenos Aires.” The name is after TV ll’s program, aired 
Wednesday evenings. 

Ricardo Castelblanco of Edami is working hard on new tune “Lacrime di 
una Tromba,” an Italian product, and Mexican ranchera “Pa Todo el Ano,” 
penned by well known composer Jose Alfredo Jiminez. Other Edami items are 
“Desdemona,” “Cuando Brilla la Luna” and “Loop de Loop.” 

Jose Ruzo reports that he has started working as artistic director of Sprint 
Music, the pubbery formed by Hugo Celano and located at Lavalle 560. First 
tune to be promoted is “Esta Noche No,” Italian song published oidginally by 
Efembra of that country. There is one version (by Elsa Quarta — Philips) in 
the market, and Spanish lyrics have been already prepared. 

Producciones Fermata has finished the recording of the first locally produced 
album recorded by Antonio Prieto. As we have informed previously, the album 
contains tango music with string orchestra ai-rangements. Prieto has also 
cut a single for Fermata: “Yo tengo un Primo en America” and “Otro Beso.” 

News from Odeon: the promotion department is working on the Pepe Reyes 
version of “El Camaleon,” the new chart rider, and the top rated album con- 
taining cumbia music and recorded by Los Wawanco, the Colombian group. 
Other news are “La Chamarrita” by Folk group Hermanos Abrodos, and 
“Carta para Rene” by Alfredo de Angelis. On the LP side, there is an album 
by Bobby Darin: “Look At Me Now,” and classical music LP’s by Beniamino 
Gigli, David Oistrakh, Edouard Coumette and Benno Moiseiwitsch. 

Fermata Publishers still at work with “Percolator,” called here “La Cafetera 
el Colador,” and just released by CBS in the Tony Vilar version. Other items 
are “El Wini Wini” (new version: Monica Lander — Odeon Pops) and “Noche 
de las Nueve Lunas,” strong folk tune, cut by Los Fronterizos (Philips). 

Disc Jockey Records continues the promotion of Antonio Tormo, now in 
connection with his latest single, “Zamba de los Emiliozzi,” dedicated to famed 
auto racers Brothers Emiliozzi. It has been a good moment for moving his 
other singles and also his LP, cut a few months ago. 

Reports from CBS inform that “Celia,” the first single by new chanter 
Leo Dan, has been very well received. Dan has been inked by TV Channel 7 
and may also appear in one of the teen programs aired by Channel 11. CBS 
prepares also a new album by Los Cinco Latinos, currently appearing at the 
El Nacional Theater. This LP will contain some of their latest hits; “La 
Tierra,” “Trop Tard,” “Frente al Mar” and “El Arlequin de Toledo,”

Cash Box — September 7, 1963 International Section

Terry Regan of Canadian Music Sales in Toronto tells Cash Box that the 
White Heather Scottish Concert Party will begin their Canadian tour in Mon- 
treal (9/5). Present plans call for the group to play Ottawa, Toronto, the Ca- 
nadian western Provinces and continue through many leading American cities. 
Terry's Dominion label boasts three of the tour’s headliners, Dennis Clancy, 
Jimmy Neil and Arthur Spink. Star of the White Heather tour this year is 
Andy Stewart. 

Paul White will shortly have a couple of new releases featuring Ottawa 
based talent. The Capitol label recently signed Bob Harrington and the Es- 
quires to a contract. Their first release is due any day. Even more recently 
Vince Caron’s four sides, done a short while ago in Nashville and slated at one 
time for release on RCA Victor, were acquired by Capitol. As a result the label 
has four very commercial sounding sides ready to go in the near future. 

A recent Cash Box visitor was Walt Grealis, promo man for London in To- 
ronto. Walt tells us that the Jackie DeShannon single, “Little Yellow Roses,’’ 
is a hot item in his area, and seems certain to do as well as the artist’s most 
recent hit, “Needles And Pins.’’ Walt indicates that high on the list of the 
Summer’s big ones is the Doris Troy outing on Atlantic, “Just One Look.’’ 

It spent several weeks on the top of both Toronto’s pop stations’ charts. “Teen- 
age Cleopatra’’ by Tracey Dee is a strong regional outing for Walt and the 
McKay office. On the C&W side of the picture Walt has a hot album that was 
picked by Toronto’s new C&W outlet, CFGM, as album of the week a short 
■while ago. The set is a good package of standards and some newer items by 
long time country favorite, Slim Whitman, entitled “Yodelling.” At the same 
time the set was featured over an entire week by the Toronto outlet, Hal Ross 
in London’s Montreal H.Q. made arrangements with CKOY — Ottawa, spinner 
Ted Daigle to feature the same set on his C&W segment. Hal is also doing a 
big promo job on the new Julie London, Liberty, outing, “I’m Coinin’ Back To 
You.” The campaign is paying off with strong air play in both Montreal and 
Ottawa. Gord Sinclair, morning host on the Montreal area outlet, CFOX, is 
reportedly giving the side lots of exposure on his 6 to 9’er. 

Arc Sound Ltd., held their Annual Sales Meeting ( 8 / 6 ) at the Inn On The 
Park, Toronto. President Phil G. Anderson welcomed the label’s Ontario sales 
force and outlined the firm’s future plans. W. R. Gilliland, V.P. -sales, pre- 
viewed new products including the most recent Arc acquisition, the Jay Jay 
line, while Fall and Winter advertising and promotion plans were unveiled by 
national promotion manager, John Porteous. The firm’s A&R dept., headed up 
by Dan Bass has recently relocated in Shoreacre’s House, Don Mills, with the 
resulting increase in studio space to contribute materially to Arc’s expanded 
recording plans. Interesting to note that “Charlena” by Ritchie Knight and 
The Midnights is getting a big promotion push in Australia from Arc’s affiliate I 
down under, W & G Records. A mailing piece has been prepared from the 
(7/27) Canadian Column in Cash Box by W & G, and is now being circulated 
to the trade throughout Australia. There is every indication that Australia’s 
deejays and dealers will be getting considerable mileage out of the item by 
Ritchie Knight that did very well in several key Canadian i-egions recently. 

Bob Wilson has been given the green light as production manager of CHEC 
in Lethbridge, Alberta. To take up the slack in the air schedule with Wilson’s 
departure for the PD’s office, R. K. Legge has been added to the personality 
lineup on the Southern Alberta outlet. Pete Griffin, veteran Canadian broad- 
caster and most recently associated with Ottawa’s CKOY, has recently joined 
the staff of the soon-to-hit-the-air CHUM-FM in Toronto. Friends and associ- i 
ates throughout the industry wish him well in his new post. Brian Litman, 
formerly with CKOM, Regina has joined the staff at C-HOW in Welland. In- i 
cidentally, the Niagra Frontier outlet is celebrating its fifth birthday during 
September. The very best wishes of the industry at large is extended to the 
C-HOW folks. ■ i 

A very welcome call received by this corner the other A.M. from Bob Dow. 
Bob is currently breaking the chait barrier in numerous Canadian markets 
with his good RCA Victor outing, “We’re Going Swimming.” It hadn’t occurred 
to your correspondent, but Bob Dow was a member of a very promising vocal 
group some years ago in the Toronto area called the Four Bows. At that time 
we had worked together extensively. Another member of the group, Doug 
Lycett, has also gone out on his own of late with some real commercial sides 
under the Arc banner. Real good Canadian release on Quality has crossed the 
desk it’s by Jerry Palmer, a Fort William Youngster who has had several re- 
leases under the Gaiety banner. This newie on Quality is one of the strongest 
commercial sides young Jerry has done so far in his career and may well be 
the big break he so richly deserves. Side is entitled, “Celebration Day” and 
comes on as a very happy, bright and bouncy item. Whitey Haines at B.M.I. 
has his fingers crossed for a newie on Columbia by Little Caesar and The Con- 
suls. “If (I Found A New Girl)” is a bluesy ballad that could happen. Bobby 
Curtola appeared in Brockville (8/17) with Bryan Olney of Kingston’s CKWS. 
The Brockville date was followed by one niters for the popular young Tartan 
artist in Kingston and Smiths Falls. During the day of his Kingston visit 
(8/22) the CKWS spinners devoted the entire 24 hours to Bobby, declaring 
it, “Bobby Curtola Day.” Similar treatment was given to young Curtola (8/28) 
at the CNE in Toronto where he appeared at the CHUM Satellite Station on 
the grounds with the CHUM “champs” and “chicks.” “Three Rows Over” is the 
title of Bobby’s latest single on Tartan. It has been an immediate pick wher- 
ever it has appeared. It marks something of a depai-ture from norm, in that it 
is the first side Bobby has recorded on a single that was not written by his 
co-managers, Basil and Dyer Hurdon. 

Barry Sharpe is conducting a ninety minute hootenanny segment over King- 
ston’s CKWS beginning every Sunday at Midnight. He reports an excellent re- 
sponse from listeners to the hoot venture. CF(dF Radio in Montreal has just 
debuted a new hoot segment. It’ll be broadcast every Saturday afternoon on 
the Montreal outlet. 

Tamarac Records is making plans, in cooperation with U.S. hit maker Bob 
Crewe, to record two Canadians, Shirley Matthews and Jayson King. Stan 
Klees of Tamarac indicates the session will take place in New Yoi’k (9/3) with 
Canadian distribution set by Tamarac and world wide distribution through 
Genius Ins. 

“Enamorado” by Keith Colley is bringing a big smile to Ron Newman’s face 
these days. The Phonodisc exec is very excited about initial reaction to the 
side. Could develop into another “Volare,” says Ron. Meanwhile, action is 
really beginning on the newie by The Glencoves. The Joy outing, entitled 
^‘Don’t Knock,” will be a strong follow up to “Hootenanny” by the group. 

CKOY-Ottawa deejay Johnny Murphy and Ottawa Journal record columnist 
Sandy Gardner have entered into a public wager on the merit of the new 
Claude King, Columbia outing, “Scarlet O’Hara ” If the King disk reaches the 
top ten on the national charts by the second week in September, the newspaper- 
man must pay off his bet by broadcasting an hour of the deejay’s Sunday after- 
noon air segment. If “Scarlet” runs out of top ten gas, then Johnny will be 
turning newspaper columnist for a week. Either way Claude King seems to be 
a winner. Vancouver area reportedly going big for the newie on Quality by 
The Canadian Sweethearts. “Freight Train” is a strong revival of the while- 





ITALY 


Charles Aznavour came to Italy recently to take part in the film “Alta’ In 
fedelta’ ” (High Infidelity). During his stay in Rome, he recorded his first sin-: 
gle sung in Italian. The titles chosen for his debut in the Italian language are^ 
“Oh Toi La Vie” and “L’Amour C’est Comme Un Jour.” Italian lyrics of both; 
songs were written by Sergio Bardotti. 

RCA Italiana, which distributes in our country the Barclay line, under which 
Aznavour’s records are released, is conducting a strong promotional campaign 
on this French artist; his record “Donne Moi Tes Seize Ans,” chosen for the 
label’s summer campaign, is one of the best sellers of the season. This title was 
performed by Charles on a Rome TV program. 

After a period of absence on the International hit scene, the Italian song 
seems to be returning on the international market: we refer first of all to the 
two original Italian hits presently on the Top 100: “More,” fi’om the film 
“Mondo Cane,” which has been recorded in the States by at least 18 different 
artists, and “Uno Dei Tanti” that under title “I Who Have Nothing,” so well 
performed by Ben E. King. The original Italian recordings are the original 
C.A.M. record of “More” distributed by United Artists and the original Italian 
version by Joe Sentieri under Ricordi label, pressed and distributed in the US 
by Vesuvius Records. 

Sentieri had a good exposure, too, with his Italian recording of “I Will Fol- 
low Him,” also distributed by Vesuvius Records. 

Another original Italian title, and an original Italian record, too, is shown 
at the top of the Argentina chart: “Mira Como Me Balanceo,” the Spanish 
title of the Italian tune “Guarda Come Dondolo,” written and recorded by our 
pop artist Edoardo Vianello. Also on the Argentina chart are two other original 
Italian titles: “La Terza Luna” in the Italian version of Neil Sedaka, and “La 
Partita Di Pallone” performed in Italian by Rita Pavone and Cocki Mazzetti. 

In Japan we find another original Italian title and original Italian recording 
climbing the charts of that country: The tune is “Go Kart Twist” and ’the 
performer is the young RCA talent Gianni Morandi. 

Another RCA singer is also listed among the LP best selleis in Brazil. The 
name of the artist is Nico Fidenco, whose album contains compositions penned 
by himself. 

It is probably the first time in three years that names of Italian talents are 
appeai-ing so frequently on the international charts. We hone, therefore, that 
Italian music has found once again its “way to the success.” 

Tony Renis, winner of the San Remo Festival this year, will perform in a 
TV show as an actor. He will also take part in three new motion pictures. In 
Rome, Tony has just recorded two titles: “Se Mi Guardi In Fondo A1 Cuore” 
from the film “Mondo Cane” and “ 81 / 2 .” Both titles are owned by Campi Pub- 
lishing Firm. Tony cuts for EMI.

SCANDINAVIA 


Two new labels were just born, spawned by the Campei Company. The names 
of these two labels are Campei Records and Astro Records. Both of them bow 
on the music market with a catalog of several long plays of danceable music 
and other types. Artists on these labels are Carlos Tirado, Hectro Hallal, Luis 
Marquez, Ramon Marquez and some other conductors with their orchestras. 
One of the owners of this company (Campei) is Alfredo “El Guero” Gil, who 
sings with the Trio Los Panchos and the general manager is Homero Costas. 
A&R man is Willy Samperio. 

The FIFTH NATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL at the Insurgentes Theater, with 
the appearances of our best jazz players like Chucho Zarzosa, Pepe Solis, Tino 
Contreras. Victor Ruiz Pasos, Leo Carrillo, The Castro Brothers, Pedro Placen- 
cia, Hectro Hallal, Fred Tatman, Salvador Agueros and many others, is on 
from Sept. 9-11. The organizer of this event will be Jose Luis Duran, who 
expects to have some foreign guests. 

And speaking about jazz, at The Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City has 
been giving several concerts with drummer Tino Contreras and his group. 
Songs like “Imagination,” “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “The Man with the Golden 
Arm,” “Mack the Knife” and “Orpheu at the Drumms” are presented in these 
concerts. 

RCA introduced a new rock and roll group under the name of The Untouch- 
ables, and its first record made is “Coqueta.” A big promotion is due to popu- 
larize this group. 

Uncredible but true, rock and roll got its “second breath” and is again as 
popular as it used to be. New records like “Popeye” with The Apson Boys, 
“Chica Cruel” with The Mabers, “Rscacielos” with The Teen Tops, “Donde 
Vas” with Los Locos del Ritmo, “Tequila con limon” with Arturo, “Coqueta” 
with Los Intocables and many others are now top hits on radio stations, in 
spite of the newspapermen who have written a lot of columns about the com- 
plete death of this rhythm. As one can imagine, labels are recording more 
i-ock and roll each day. 

After a long time off recording, Chilean singer Monna Bell cut at Gamma 
Records and very soon we will have her version to “I Will Follow Him” in 
Spanish. 

On London label, we received a marvelous long play sung by Catarina 
Valente with Werner Muller accompaniment. Caterina dedicated this album to 
Mexico, and she sings Mexican songs like “La Malaguena,” “Cu cu rru cu cu 
Paloma,” “Nunca, nunca,” “Cachito,” “La Cigarra,” “Franqueza,” “Donde 
estas corazon,” “La Cigarra,” “Oracion Caribe” and some others. These songs 
were chosen by Caterina in her last trip to Mexico, where she performed at a 
night club and it is possible that she will be here very soon. 

Pepe Leon, owner of the night club Terrazza Cassino, is expecting pianist 
Carmen Cavallaro, who should debut very soon in his place. At the same time. 
Carmen will do some dates on TV and probably in theaters. 

Argentinian singer Baby Bell, who may settle in Mexico, has at RCA a new 
record named “Sola, sola” (Alone, Alone). At the same time. Baby is doing 
two pictures, performing in theaters and TV and soon will do a tour through 
some South American countries. Baby said that she already received a new 
song composed by Paul Anka, especially written for her. The name is “Rie, 
rie (Laugh, Laugh). 

A cocktail party, attended by all the artists of “the new wave,” celebrated 
the anniversary of the radio programa “El show de Gutierrez Zamora.” This 
is the first time that a disk jockey has had his own show on radio with great 
success. Mexico has only two or three disk jockeys. The rest are announcers 
only. 

Peerless Records released new recordings with Vianey Valdez singing “Good 
Timin’ ” and “Sympathy,” backed by rock and roll group Los Apson Boys. 
Another Peerless artist, Queta Garay, recorded a new and modern version of 
an old standard, “Mi Querido Capitan.” 

Musart Records is reducing its artist staff because many artists who used 
to record there are looking to sign contracts with other labels.

SWEDEN 

Berns Restauranger in Stockholm opened August 1, 1863, and thus this 
world-wide known restaurant celebrates its 100th birthday this year. At & 
press party last v/eek, announcing the program for the celebration, Chris 
Folcker, a & r man of Berns told the press that starting Sept. 19, Berns ^- 
gins with something it calls “100 Days Birthday Party,” during which period 
the restaurant presents a great number of world famous artists, such_ as 
Karl Gerhard, Svend Asmussen and Ulrik Neumann, Eartha Kitt, Miriam 
Makeba, Zarah Leander, Marlene Dietrich, Sammy Davis Jr., and Jayne Mans- 
field, among others. A special LP album presenting Berns in the 100 years 
that has gone will be released by His Master’s Voice (EMI). On August 25, 
the restaurant was closed as this day was for a special party for the per- 
sonnel at Berns. After 1955 when variety shows at restaurants serving alco- 
hol again was legalized in Sweden, Berns very quickly became a place just 
as wellknown among international top artists as London’s Palladium of Lido 
in Paris, and by now many of the leading world stars have been appearing 
at Berns, such as the above mentioned as well as Patachou, Josephine Baker, 
Georges Ulmer, June Richmond, Charles Trenet, Nicholas Brothers, Signe 
Hasso, Harry Belafonte, Lys Assia, Edith Piaf, Eve Boswell, Caterina Va- 
lente, Abbey Lincoln and numerous others. 

New sheet music from Belinda (Scandinavia) AB includes “You’re The 
Devil In Disguise,” now number one seller on records in Denmark, Norway and 
Sweden, “Eighteen Yellow Roses” by Bobby Darin, “Sweets For My Sweet,” 
“Lucky Lips” and “That’s Old Fashioned.” Ake Gerhard-Larsson, head of Be- 
linda told Cash Box that he is expecting a lot from the German song “Danke 
Schoen,” which so far has been recorded in Swedish by Anita Lindblom on 
Fontana. 

Dave Dexter, Director, International Artists and Repertoire of Capitol Rec- 
ords in Hollywood, told Cash Box that he had been having a very interesting 
and successful trip around Europe, looking for local recordings suitable for 
album release in Capitol’s “Capitol Of The World” series. He left his Cali- 
fornia based home office in end of July and expects to be back in H’wood in 
end of August. He said he expected that as a result of this trip, Capitol will 
be able to add some new 50 European albums to its catalogs. As to foreign 
language records, Dexter said there is an increasing market in the 50 states 
of the Union, but of course, it takes some special promotion to get any result. 
Dexter came to Stockholm from Oslo where he was the first from Capitol 
Records to have visited the Norwegian distributor of the label, and left Stock- 
holm for Helsinki. 

It will be very interesting to watch the reaction of the Mexican song “An- 
siedad,” Bernt Baune of Gehrmans told Cash Box. This is a real hit in most 
of Latin America, with more than 50 recordings available. Unfortunately, 
none of them have any chance to be released at the Scandinavian markets, 
Baune said. 

Anders Holmstedt of Skandinavisk Grammophon AB (EMI) here told Cash 
Box that he was very happy about the great success of Kuy Sakamoto’s “Su- 
kiyaki,” released on the HMV label (not Capitol as been listed in the Swedish 
charts) here. Swedish publisher of the song is Edition Odeon, the EMI pub- 
bery, and there has just been a local version recorded by Danish singer Otto 
Brandenburg for Odeon. 

Cornin’ and goin’: Mr. Batzem, export mgr of Electrola in Germany to 
Stockholm for biz talks with the EMI people. . . . Sonny Liston, heavyweight 
champion, on tour in Sweden. Record industry takes advantages by special 
promotion for “Night Train,” the favorite tune of the champ. . . . Larry Fin- 
negan, American singer, on tour in Sweden. . . . Lena Horne cancelled her 
dates at the Berns since she is engaged in integration demonstrations back in 
the U.S. She will be replaced at Berns by the French world famous Maurice 
Chevalier.

l<or the fifth straight year, the Jazz festival was held at Comblain-la-Tour. 
It was ag'ain organized by American Joe Napoli. The Festival blooms every 
year in the month of August in this typical village on the Ourthe river near 
Liege. There were many musicians from many countries in Comblain and a 
large audience, who braved heavy rains. On Saturday night there were about 
8,000 people, and about 3,000 of them got in without paying, climbing over 
the fences. This then was the climate of the Festival in the meadow: eccenti’ic 
gaiety in clothing, accommodation in hotels, with families, in the streets and 
on the bare ground along the river. This atmosphere was also pi-esent with the 
audience: many people went on chattering, only listening with one ear. Listen- 
ing to jazz must indeed be relaxing. 

Thez-e was also a lot of “twisting” at Comblain. This took place in a smaller 
meadow which could be reached by way of the “teenagers’ bridge.” The Festi- 
val was opened by Miss Belgian Beauty and there was a lot of dancing, en- 
dangering the solidity of the wooden flooring. 

Highlight of the Festival was the appearance of famous French performer 
Philippe Clay, who had a hard time in conquei'ing his rowdy audience, but was 
nevertheless impressive. Comblain-la-Tour is also something like a Fair, but 
it has managed to preserve its musical interest. Lots of oi’chesti’as often 
brought excellent music. 

Star performer of Saturday night was American organ player Jimmy Smith. 
His numbers had an outdoor flavor about them, out of sheer necessity. As was 
to be expected, Jimmy impressed his audience with his extraordinary virtuosity. 
He was at his best with his slow blues themes. He says the organ remains the 
instrument for the masses. American jazz artist Bud Shank rounded off the 
Festival and he reaped an immense success. 


Even if the rain poured down on Comblain-la-Tour, one can’t say that it 
dampened the spirits of the audience. Thousands of people who had put on their 
Summer di’esses a few hours before got out their protective clothing and um- 
brellas and withstood the downpour to be able to enjoy the floods of music. 

Bestsellers of SA Fonior are “Gondoli, Gondola” by Pat Boone; Rudi An- 
thony’s “Abschied im Regen” and “Vorbei” and numbers by Les Aiglons, Frank 
Alamo, Vico Torriani (very popular in Belgium as some of his German shows 
have been relayed by Flemish TV), Les Chaussettes Noires, Claudine Coppin, 
The Sunlights (who have done excellent work with “Day Train”); Tonia (with 
her Flemish version of “L’ecole est finie”) ; Eddie Mitchell with his tune “Je 
Ne Pense Qu’a L’amour” and of course Caterina Valente, Billy Vaughn and also 
Harold Nicholas, who is less known over here. Hector Delfosse 'Decca) re- 
mains one of the most popular accordion players and his records sell like hot 
cakes. Prominent in Fonior’s classical repertoii’e are Verdi’s “Traviata”; Mah- 
lers’ Symphony No. One (The Titan) and Symphony No. 8 by Dvorak. 

Discobels bestsellers apparently are still “Johnny Guitar” by The Spotnicks 
(Discotar) as number one. Then follow: “Domain Tu Te Maries,” Patricia Carli 
(Bel Air) ; “Ik Heb Eerbied Voor Jouw Grijze Haren,” Gert Timmerman (Disco- 
star); “Dance, Dance, Dance”, Joey Dee (Roulette); “The Big Beat,” Fats 
Domino (Imperial); “Whoo Whoo” by the Rock-a-Teens; “Soulville” by Dina 
Washington (both on Roulette); Barbara Lewis’ “Hello Stranger” (Atlantic); 
Leny Escudero’s “Tu Te Reconnaitras” (Bel Air); Sandy Nelson’s “Feel So 
Good” (Imperial); Domenique Grange’s “Je Ne Suis Plus Ton Copain” (Bel Air) 
and Jerry Bey’s “Tulpen en Rozen” <Discostar). 

Ronnex Records not only distributes Ronnex and the cheaper Teeny records 
(featuring today’s hits) but it also takes care of the distribution of Fidelity’s 
classical repertoire in the LP range and of Kimberley, with the accent on jazz. 
There is also a series “Sounds You See and Hear” featuring well known 
orchestras and soloists (in stereo) which is selling well. Ronnex now also 
deals with the Supraphon-catalog with outstanding recordings of classical and 
folklore music. 


There is some quite interesting news concerning Walloon crooner Adamo, 
without doubt one of the most popular performers in Belgium. In the first 
place, his most recent number “Crier ton nom” (Pathe) has once again become 
a nationwide hit and even more important he will go on a tour of Belgium 
with Petula Clark from Ocotber 22 to October 31. From November 1 to Decem- 
ber 7 he will be traveling around France with Sheila and from December 12 to 
December 26 he will be star performer at the Olympia Theater in Paris. 

At the beginning of October the Great Will Tura Contest (Will is with 
Palette) will start in Belgium. Will is to visit the Flemish provinces with a 
big show with The Cousins and will be on the lookout for new talent. His firm 
has launched the slogan “Become a disk-star with Will Tura.” Jan Theys who 
was MC for the European Contest voor Song Recital this Summer in Knokke 
will take care of the presentation. 


Vogue has at last produced a second record by Marva; it features “Mischka 
and “Amor Perduto Amor.” We believe the latter will be IT. Marva has in th 
meantime become very popular. She has both charm and a fine sense of humoi 

Shew Records tells us the sales of “Fingertips” is beyond all expectation 
and after a few days the record was out of stock. Next single by Stevie Wonde 
will be called “La la la la la”/“Don’t You Know.” Following its success wit 
Una Noche” and “Maria Magdalena”/“Gitanata,” The Venus Trio has cut 
third record featuring “My Yiddische Momme”/“El Chipi chipi” due to appea 
next month. V ery soon Show Records will be on the market with the Craz 
Zy Rockers: “Papa Mama Twist” and “The Third Man.” Sales in Holland hav 
gone v^ll and this firm expects Belgium will follow suit. Toppers with this firr 

Wonder), “Reet Petite” (Dee Dee Sharp), “Forge 
Him (Bobby Rydell), “Don’t Let Her Be Your Baby” (The Contours), “Bird 
land” (Parkway). 

SA Gramophone informs us it is preparing Adamao’s first LP. It will featur 
what IS known as “uncommercial songs.” Adamo still heads the sales lisi 
followed by Richard Anthony, Cliff Richard and The Shadows. This firm ha 
now launched the soundtrack of 20th Century’s “Cleopatra.” 

Mr. Mertens, A&R manager of Polydor-Belgium, informs us that current! 
the new record by hitmaker Bob Benny will be issued. Titles are “Alleen Bi 
2 T first mentioned is the Flemish version o 

Die Perlenfisher’’ of Bizet, a classical hit. Polydor signed 14 year old Joh 
Larry, a pretty young boy who made his first record for this label- “Alleen 
and “Die Uren met You.” “Waar en Wanneer” by Bob Benny, has been take 
in sub-edition by World Music for the whole world. A new Brenda Lee recor 
will soon be on the market with “Only You,” a song we all know since severs 
years in the time it was one of the biggest hits of The Platters. The grou 
Les ChabrolTs won the first prize of instrumental groups (newcomers) i 
Comblain-la-Tour. 

Vogue will have a new hit by the last EP of Petula Clark with “Plaza d 
Toros” (the French version of “The Lonely Bull”) as the most importan 
number of the four ones. The others are: “J’ai Tout Oublie,” “H y a Tellemen 
de Filles,” “Mon Bonheur Danse.” “Mischka,” the second record by Marva o 
Vogue is doing very well, Meylemans informs us. 



Bovema’s Capitol department reports to Cash Box that all items released by 
The Beach Boys so far are doing fine on the market. Last week their recording 
of “Little Deuce Coupe” hit the surfin’ stands. Another strong seller in this 
country will be Wanda Jackson’s “Memory Mountain,” featured on Teenager- 
TV-panel “Top of Flop” last week. 

Bovema’s Warner Bros, probably has some hot news for many Dutch Everly 
Brothers and Peter, Paul & Mary fans in Holland. With all reserve, of course, 
negotiations are going on to arrange their personal appearance in this coun- 
try September next. No dates have been fixed yet. 

Liberty, in Holland last week released special couplings of Eddie Cochran 
(Somethin’ Else — Hallelujah, I Love Her So) and The Ventures (The Guitar 
Twist — The Twist). 

Hand in glove with most recent Hit Parade listing, Bovema’s Stateside label 
is heavily plugging items by Randy and The Rainbows (Denise!) and The Four 
Seasons’ runner-up “Candy Girl.” So does the Atlantic label with Ben E. King’s 
“I (Who Have Nothing).”

One of the biggest events in the record area is surely the fantastic start of 
“I’m Movin’ On” by Matt Lucas on Philips records. We were told by Mr. 
Licoppe and Mr. Poutrain of Philips, that in a few days, more than 10,000 
copies of the hit song were sold. Further Philips hits are “Si tu Veux etre 
Heureux” (Claude Francois), “Pendant les Vacances” (Sheila), “Les Bras en 
Croix,” “Tes Tendres Annees” and “Da Do Ron Ron” (all by Johnny Halliday) 
and “Je me sens tres Seul” by Robert Cogoi, who sung the French version now 
of the Will Tura hit “Je Liegt” as “Tu ments.” 

We forgot publisher “Intervox Music pvba” (Herculusstreet 3, Antwerp) 
in the Cash Box Directory. This active company, directed by a&r man L. J. 
Van Rymenant, scored many successes in the past year. The firm controls 
eighty percent of The Spotnicks material in Benelux and records all of the 
Marco Remez platters, which are selling successfully the world over. New 
important releases are “Yolanda”/“Baciami Stasera” by Lou Montano on Dis- 
costar and German top hit “Meine Braut Die Kann Das Besser” by The Strang- 
ers on Decca. Big horse of the company is “Gloria In Excelsis Deo,” of which 
16 different recordings will be released in October in 7 languages. The original 
recording by Ray Mondo has now been sold to President (France), Zafiro 
(Spain) and Sonet (Scandinavia). 

Intervox Music pvba has acquired the rights on the Gerd Bottcher title 
“Meine Braut Die Kann Das Besser,” German top-ten number. Famous Belgian 
vocal quartet The Strangers will record it in Flemish for Decca. Same pub- 
lisher also has Benelux rights on another Bottcher number of the Deutsche 
Schlagerfestspiele, “Mach Nicht Hochzeit Ohne Mich.” 

The Spotnicks, who have the topseller “Johnny Guitar,” will have a strong 
followup with their “Amapola,” coupled with “Listen To My Heart.” Latter 
title also belongs to Intervox, and has been a hit before by Frank Ifield.

Cash Box — September 7, 1963j 



AAA 

Cash Box< AUSTRALI A^> 

Following a great deal of discussion and prediction over the last few weeks 
regarding his future with Radio Station 2SM, it now seems apparent that 
star disk-jockey Bob Rogers will remain with that station. 

Everyone at Australian Record Company is thrilled with the news that 
Columbia of America is to release the locally produced CBS click “Bombora” 
by The Atlantics. Speaking with Cash Box, Ray Bull of ARC said Columbia 
had cabled requesting tapes in preparation for an almost immediate release. 
“Bombora” is a great instrumental single and has now become a national 
hit. CBS have released an album set entitled “Bombora” by The Atlantics 
and it should be a real winner. 

The Festival group is out with its first Australian release of the 20th 
Century-Fox label which is given local identification. First issues are “Beach 
Party” by Tex and Chex and Corey Denver with “ Johnny River.” 

John Emmerson frorn the Professional Department at Allan’s Music (also 
Acutf-Rose and D. Davis & Co.), one of our major publishing houses, advises 
strong sheet sales on some of its current items such as “Abilene” (Acutf- 
Rose) and “Move Baby Move” (Davis). Now that the Cliff Richard movie 
“Summer Holiday” is screening in Australia, Allan’s expects an increased 
demand for the several hit songs from the show. 

Further promotion moves inside the Australian Record Company organiza- 
tion is Alf Watts to the position of general manager, Peter Jeyes, company 
secretary and Ray Bull to the post of general sales manager. 

There seems to be a great deal of action coming up on the big C&W hit 
from the United States, “Talk Back Trembling Lips.” CBS is out with a 
version by Ernest Ashworth and W & G have a locally cut release on the 
title by Adrian Ussher. General feeling here is that “Talk Back Trembling 
Lips” will become a pop success in Australia. 

Belinda Music advised that it has acquired the catalog of Jobette Music 
Company Inc. and also the Roosevelt catalog. Belinda has also formed Kalman 
Music (Australia) Pty. Ltd. which will handle the works of the famous Ameri- 
can composer Kal Mann and others. 

The first locally produced single for RCA brings Digger Devell and The 
Denvermen with the Johnny Devlin composition “I’m Gonna Make You” and 
a revival of the old standard “Over The Rainbow.” 

One of the most consistent disk attractions on the local scene, Rob E. G. 
(who has a big hit with “55 Days At Peking” — and previously with “Jezebel”) 
has a new album out on the Festival label entitled “Jezebel And Eleven 
Others.” If Rob’s singles sales can be taken as a guide, he should score heavily 
with this album set. 

We can’t remember the last occasion on which local records have held down 
the three top spots on our best seller list as they do this week; “55 Days At 
Peking”; “Bombora” and “Move Baby Move.” Another local i-ecord is in 
equal No. 10 spot this week — “Pedro The Fisherman” by The Saxons. With 
so much strong action on local products the trade can confidently look for- 
ward to many more local singles and albums over the next few months leading 
on to our summer season.

All along these columns we have been stating that nothing important 
happened during this summer. We were right but we are now wrong. Some- 
thing happened: it is the tremendous success obtained by Patricia Carli with 
her song “Demain Tu Te Maries.” Though it is not one of his songs, Regis 
"Talar from Tutti stated that in all the diskeries and clubs, the song is “Demain 
Tu Te Maries” and everybody is talking about Patricia Carli. Mogul Georges 
Bonjenah is in complete agreement with Talar and the hottest juke-box deck 
is “Demain Tu Te Maries.” 

Now, a few words regarding Patricia Carli. She is a young author, composer 
and singer. This is the 2nd record. Her 1st one was not very successful but 
for this one she appears as one of the best female singers that we have. She 
is not rock, she is not twist, she is simply a singer with a good voice. 

To finish on this matter, we must say that she is recording for Bel Air 
which, as everybody knows, is directed by Nicole Barclay alone. 

We must come back again on the matter of the troubles caused by the 
teenage idols during their summer tours because this takes on a national 
aspect. After the troubles and fights caused by the fact that Johnny Hallyday 
one day, and Sylvie Vartan the second day, left the stage after two songs. 
The south of France is now forbidden for them. They have no more the right 
to sing on the French Riviera. 

One important French newspaper called Noir Et Blanc stated in its front 
page that it is “the end of the French idols” and maybe it is the big chance 
of Patricia Carli and quite a few others who try to get acceptance with their 
work. 

One singer who has a very good song is Petula Clark and the song is “Piazza 
Del Toro.” Mogul Jacques Gallimidi, who is back from holidays, said that 
“Piazza Del Toro” was really appreciated by the youth. 

However the holidays are over, nothing is yet really started. Back in Paris, 
we have Georges Meyerstein, prexy of Philips and Philippe Boutet from the 
Nicole Barclay publishing firm. 

We had pleasure in meeting Brigitte Bertholier from Bagatelle publishing 
firm She is starting to work hard on a Machucambos recording “Mi Son 
Inamorato De Ti and a Nana Mouskouri recording “L’Orage.” Let’s say that 
the other side of this record is “Avant Toi” which belongs to Tutti. Same as 
“Mira Mirame,” the other side of the Machucambos record. 

Just before the holidays, Sheila gave us a wonderful record and it appears 
that the best song is “La Vie Est Belle,” which is a French version of “Killer 
Joe.” 



GERMANY 



The slow summer season, which wasn’t so slow this year, has come to an 
end and the charts reflect a trend to melody as no hard rock numbers are 
presently in the top 10 here. Of the top 10, 6 are original German songs, one 
song is American, one Japanese, one from Holland and one from England also 
reflecting the fact that the market here is no longer dependent on the USA for 
hit material. The first “sound” recording, “Blame It On the Bossa Nova” made 
the charts and the new double voice sound is now getting exposure through 
rnany new waxings. The successful German Radio-TV-Phono Fair in Berlin 
kicked off the new season with 122 manufacturers of sound equipment and 
records showing their wares. The industry represented there reflects a yearly 
turnover of 3.6 billion marks or almost a billion dollars. About 400,000 visitors 
were at the fair. One of the featured attractions of the fair was a “stereo” bar 
where classical music was played and a request cafe where the visitors could 
ask for their favorite record to be played while they refreshed themselves. 
Both the first and second German TV stations were there and were very active 
in bringing programs from the fair. The record industry built their “Record 
City” with all the firms joining together to form one big display area in the 
biggest hall on the fair grounds. 'This week (2), CBS gives a press party in 
Berlin where CBS president Goddard Lieberson and veep Harvey L. Schein 
along with European manager Peter De Rougemont from Paris will be pre- 
sented to the press. The German Radio and TV stations broadcast and pre- 
sented 141 hours of entertainment and informative programs. All in all, the 
fair was a huge succcess and really kicked off the new season in a big way 
for the record and phono industry. 

Other features of the fair included the stereo “Audio Fidelity” display by 
Philips and the RCA Dynagroove show by Teldec. 

Hans R. Beierlein reports that his Edition Montana is getting set for a 
swinging fall with new disks by Petula Clark and Mimmy Justice as well as 
Siw Malmkvist entei’ing the ring for the new season. 

German Vogue has produced 2 German songs with Jimmy Justice in Mu- 
nich and also 2 with Petula Clark. The firm has also signed former Ariola star 
Jimmy Makulis to a long term contract. 

Konrad Wolf from Edition Modern is crowing about the success of “Suki- 
yaki” which has 10 recordings issued here already and entered the charts in 
the number 9 position this week. 

The Blue Diamonds, who have the best selling disking of “Sukiyaki,” have 
been promoted to sergeants in the Dutch Army, naturally, at the same time. 

Philips Records is planning a major advertising campaign for the 2nd Ger- 
man musical LP by the firm, “Annie Get Your (jun,” which has its premiere 
on Sept. 5th in Berlin during the fair. The first LP, the German original cast 
version of “My Fair Lady” has passed the 250,000 mark which is a new record 
for LP’s here. Philips will release the original cast LP and 2 singles in Ger- 
man from their star Heidi Bruhl. 

The former publicity and radio director of Marbot Music Dieter Heck has 
left the firm to join Ralf Arnie and his publishing group in a similar capacity. 

"Teldec records has released the first 12" LP of Hildegard Neff with 28 
chansons from the old and new. The orchestra was directed by Gerd Wilden. 
She sings in German, English and French and the LP is expected to bring in 
good export business. The LP is set for top promotion in Germany including 
2 %-hour radio programs for German radio with material from the LP. The 
D.J. for the shows will be Teldec radio promotion chief Fritz Kohler. AFN- 
Berlin celebrated their 18th birthday on Aug. 4. On hand for the festivities 
were orchestra leader and jazz man Johannes Rediske, Rudi Schroeder from 
Will Meisel Music and Fritz Kohler from Teldec. This celebration followed 
the big 20th anniversary party of AFN in Frankfurt with a big show lead by 
Caterina Valente, Billy Mo, Peggy Brown, Bill Ramsey and Angelina Monti. 

Aberbach Music reports top action on “Da Doo Ron Ron” done in German 
by Polydor’s Ted Herold, along with new waxings from Brenda Lee, Gisella 
Marell, and Mike Rogers all in German and the newest disks by Bobby Darin, 
Elvis Presley and Pat Boone. That’s it for this week in Germany.

CONVENTION 

TIME! 


It is conceivable that just about every coin- 
operated machine made in America will be on dis- 
play in Chicago this week. The reason of course, is 
the presence of two major industry conventions— 
the MOA and NAMA trade shows. By the close of 
Convention business on Tuesday, September 10, 
millions of dollars will have been spent either in 
preparation for the show or as a result of the equip- 
ment offered for sale, or more probably as a direct 
result of the causes and affects of the trade shows. 
When the man with the better mouse trap prepares 
to offer it to market, the mouse trap buyers, if they 
are good businessmen, make sure they are on the 
scene when it is premiered. Both ends of the trade 
spend money to accomplish this result. 

In addition to the natural business events which 
take place when these two forces meet, the industry 
as a whole takes on a healthier glow. There’s noth- 
ing healthier than a man who has just worked out 
and that’s what members of the trade are going to 
get this week in Chicago— a workout. Everyone will 
be healthier, business-wise, for it. Nothing dooms a 
business, or an industry, more than the grey pallor 
which conies about from a status-quo situation 
which tends to gather dust. 

We’ve heard of several of the new ideas which 
Conventioneers can expect to view at the shows in 
Chicago and certainly there’s more than one winner 
in the bunch. The equipment and supplies no longer 
vie with the business meeting and less tangible 
phases of either Convention. Exhihition time is 
clearly separated from the forums. Both are vitally 
important to the operator and the seller of mer- 
chandise. 


We can’t remember when a trip to Chicago could 
pay off in such handsome dividends for those mak- 
ing the effort. A check through exhibitors at MOA 
indicates that some important surprises are in store 
for the operators here. The meetings have also taken 
on an air of importance and this can only mean that 
they will contain more substance than in the past— a 
good indication for operators still on the fence be- 
tween staying home and attending. 

The NAMA of course will have its usual mam- 
moth display of ecjuipment, complete with soul- 
searching forums and talks designed to make the 
operator think for himself. The list of speakers is 
impressive. They should be able to impart valuable 
words of wisdom to the expected thousands of listen- 
ers. 


It’s convention time in Chicago and as this is 
written the key figures are already completing final 
stages which will ultimately lead to the greatest ex- 
position of coin-operated equipment ever available 
in one place and at one time in the history of the 
industry. We feel honored to be in a position to be 
able to serve these shows. Certainly history will be 
made at both.

iiidystry Awaits Start Of 
iOA Convention As Final Steps 
Are Taken To Insure Needed Success 


^f^dusirtal Reps Will Count 
Heads At Close Of Show 

B Record Firms Sending 

Observers To View Convention 

CHICAGO — In addition to the ex- 
pected visitors to the Music Operators 
of America Convention on Wednes- 
day, September 4, the eyes of many 
industry leaders around the nation 
will be on the final outcome of the 
show. Phonograph manufacturers, 
record company officials, and various 
representatives of the allied indust- 
ries, were repoi’tedly awaiting the 
final tally on attendance at the na- 
tional trade show which has seen all 
four juke box manufacturers sign to 
exhibit, a record number of amuse- 
ment machine firms okay the MO A 
exhibitor sales pitch, and but four 
record company firms agreeing to ex- 
hibit during the three-day meeting at 
the Morrison Hotel here. 

Judging from early reports, the 
show has to please all concerned. The 
sheer number of exhibitors and as- 
sociated distributors and operator- 
customers are expected to fill the halls 
and the convention rooms. But the 
failures of past years prompted many 
to view with a jaundiced eye the trade 
show that has been publicized as one 
which is on the road back. 

Reports from President Harry 
Snodgrass, energetic President of 
MOA, indicate that he is pleased with 
the accomplishments to date. Presi- 
dential nominee Lou Casola, who will 
assume the Presidency at elections 
here this week, is joyous after having 
worked day and night traveling 
across the country talking with in- 
dustry officials, building a house out 
of rubble left from disasters of pre- 
vious years. Manager Bob Blundred 
has convinced many that the show 
will be a success. 

The show has a lot in its favor. The 
giant NAMA Convention which 
brought 7000 people to Chicago two 
years ago follows the MOA meet. Per- 
haps this will stimulate attendance. 
The pool table, saviour of the operator 
in some sections of the country, will 
be displayed from one end of the ex- 



LOU CASOLA 

MOA Convention Chairman 

hibition room to the other with six 
firms showing lines expected to fea- 
ture new stylings never before as- 
sociated with the 6-pocket game as it 
once was know. The “newness’ at- 
tracts visitors. 

Forums indicate that meaningful 
talks will be held. Associations are 
more interested than ever in getting 
together on a meeting ground pro- 
vided by MOA. One-stoppers, the men 
who took the lead away from the 
record firms in doing business direct 
with the juke box operator, now want 
to meet with the operators and do 
business together once each year, as 
the labels did years ago. 

There are many doubts and just 
as many points in favor of a highly 
successful convention. But after too 
many empty years, no one was going 
out on a limb. When heads are counted 
Friday evening after the three-day 
affair has closed, the answer as to the 
future of MOA will be made public. 
At press time, it appeared as though 
MOA was back on its feet. Too many 
important industry leaders have 
worked too hard to see it fail. Its the 
opinion here that on Friday evening. 
Sept. 6, MOA exces will be talking 
about an even bigger show next year, 
the year the record companies decide 
to return.

the secrecy which usually shrouds a 
new machine line. Bill Weikel would 
offer only the name of the 1964 Fisch- 
er Pool Table Series expected to be 
premiered at the MOA Convention 
this week. “The name of the line is 
‘Empress’ and it is a completely new 
idea in pool tables but continues to 
feature the incomparable Fischer 
service features,” stated the sales 
exec who will lead the entourage from 
the McHenry plant to the Morrison 
Hotel this week. 


Music Ops To 
Pick Favorite 
Artist, Record 

CHICAGO — Music operators were 
asked last week to vote for their fa- 
vorite singer and favorite record dur- 
ing 1963 and the choice was a tough

were nominated for the elections to be 
held before the MOA with winners 
announced at the banquet on Friday 
evening, September 6: Records: “I 
Left My Heart in San Francisco”, “I

Rosen Bros. Return After 9-Week Tour 
Of European Export Countries 


Used Tape Recorder To Collect Comments, Criticisms, 
(and orders). From European Customers Of Firm 



LEWIS ROSEN ELLIOT ROSEN 

PHILADELPHIA — When Irish Air- 
lines delivered the Rosen Brothers, 
Elliot and Dave, to their homeland 
last week, the airlines was also carry- 
ing some vital information concerning 


the export market. 

While the return trip was far from 
a cloak and dagger adventure, in- 
formation recorded on tape via a 
transistor tape recorder which ac- 
companied the men on their European 
rounds, gave their father, Dave 
Rosen, plenty to absorb. “It was as 
though I had made the ti’ip,” stated 
Dave Rosen, head of the David Rosen 
coin machine distributing firm here, , 
as he listened to the playback. I 


The nine-week trip took the young 
coin machine representatives through 
more than one dozen countries and 
they visited with many of the Rosen 
firm’s export customers. With the tape 
recorder on hand, export buyers were 
asked to comment on the firm, the 
equipment, the service, and the prob- 
lems that may exist. “It was a good- 
will trip that paid big dividends,” 
said Dave Rosen. They also wrote 
some business as well, in addition to 
carrying out the public relations part 
of the trip. 

As an added fillip, the boys arrived 
on Tuesday, August 27th, the birth 
date of Dave’s wife Vera, mother of 
the young reps. Vera was joined by 
her daughter Sharon and hubbie 
Dave. When the plane landed, father 
Dave said to his wife, “Happy Birth- 
day dear. I’m giving you the best 
birthday gift ever. I’m returning your 
sons to you now that their overseas 
work is finished.” It was a grand re- 
union at Idlewild for the Rosen 
family. 

The tape recorded was put to work 
however, playing back the messages 
from Rosen customers, early the next 
morning. 


The Case Of The Timid Soul 

Bilotta’s 3-Way Parlay 

NEWARK, N.Y. — Johnny Bilotta’s 
turning introverts into juke box pa- 
trons up here in New York State, ac- 
cording to reports from the Wurlitzer 
disti-ibutor last week. “The Wurlitzer 
Golden Bar which plays the Ten Top 
Tunes is playing the Golden Oldies 
up in our area,” stated Bilotta, who 
is capable of throwing six or seven 
slogans at you in one breath. “We 
have finally got the so-called timid 
soul, the guy who never walked up to 
the juke box, to come out of his shell 
and press that Golden Bar,” continued 
Bilotta. “Let’s face it, these guys 
haven’t spent a dime on a machine in 
years. Now they’re the ones who ai'e 
spending the half-a-bucks and they 
are doing it because they can get ten 
tunes at the press of one bar and they 
can hear those oldies just the way 
they used to.” Bilotta, who has been 
known to get carried away on some of 
his promotions, is down to earth with 
this one and spends his waking hours 
promoting the idea. Last week, Frank 
Fontaine, top comedian-singer of the 
Jackie Gleason TV Show, appeared at 
the 3 Rivers Inn and Bilotta was on 
hand to crown him “King Of The 
Golden Oldies.” 

“We’ve got a three-way parlay go- 
ing for us this year with Southland’s 
terrific ‘Speedway’, the Smokeshop 
‘Starlite’ cigarette vendor, and the 
Wui'litzer phonograph.” And as one 
Bilotta customer said, “you know, he’s 
right!”

Third Seeburg Special Rep Group 
Complete Training Course 


A Victory For The Van 


CHICAGO — John J. Ford, sales su- 
pervisor, and director of Special Serv- 
ices for the Seeburg Corporation, an- 
nounced last week that the third 
training school period for Special 
Representatives which commenced 
last July 15 was completed Friday, 
August 2. 

At the completion of this intensive 
training course the new men were 
given their various assignments 
throughout this country. Demonstra- 
tions are conducted on Seeburg mo- 
bile vans fitted with the firm’s equip- 
ment. 

“Now, after just about one year 
(the entire training program was 
first initiated by Jack C. Gordon, See- 
burg’s executive vice president, in 
September, 1962) the demonstration 
progi’am has definitely proven to be 
a ‘roaring’ success in every possible 
way — especially, for the music opera- 
tors who benefit in their respective 
territories,” Ford asserted. 

He then detailed the program by 
explaining that classwork during the 
three month training period involves 
lectures by all the officers and execu- 


tives of the Seeburg Sales Corpora- 
tion. There is also a week of inten- 
sive technical courses, as well as the 
well-planned sales training. 

The graduated Special Representa- 
tives who completed the present 
course (pictured here) were assigned 
to the following territories: 

(Left to right, standing) Charles 
Radcliffe, Miami, Fla.; Brian Erick- 
son, Seattle, Washington; Robert 
Math, Minneapolis, Minnesota; John 
J. Ford, Seeburg’s sales supeiwisor, 
and head of the school program; 
James Parker, Detroit, Michigan; 
Ronald Chimel, Miami, Florida; and, 
Hansgeorg Krause, Minneapolis, Min- 
nesota. 

(Left to right, seated) — Clifford 
Blais, New York City; John Neville, 
Boston, Massachusetts; Daniel Sul- 
livan, Houston, Texas; William 
Ritchie, Dayton, Ohio; and, Robert 
Parembski, Boston, Massachusetts. 
Also (not shown in the photo) Peter 
Chapman, Dayton, Ohio. 

Ford said, in conclusion, that a new 
training program will commence 
sometime in September, 1963.

Rosen In Production On Cigarette 
Saies Stimuiator After 1-Year Test 

* 'Star-Pack Merchandiser' Being Produced 
'« In Chicago By Midway Manufacturing 

■ Offers Free Pack To Lucky Customers; On 
^ Display During MOA-NAMA Run At Midway 


pj2 PHILADELPHIA — Dave Rosen has 
rP developed a sales stimulator for elec- 
> trie cigarette machines, and produc- 
tion is in full gear at the Midway- 
Manufacturing Company in Chicago, 
following one-year tests on the unit 
which delivers a pack of cigarettes 
■ '’free to the lucky customer. 

The unit, known as “Star Pack 
Merchandiser,” was designed and en- 
gineered by John Cherpress, a me- 
(r chanic with the David Rosen Inc. or- 
ii I , ganization. The tests were conducted 
/ by Rosen in the Philadelphia area, 
and Hank Ross of Midway was given 
jjl^ the go-ahead sign last month when 
Rosen’s attorneys agreed with him 
[ ^ that the unit will be considered legal 
M in view of its similarity to a system 
1 used in Philadelphia’s supermarkets 
p whereby customers receive a com- 
plete food order free of charge when 
}' a star lights up on the cash register. 
' The idea came about when the price 

f ' of cigarettes was increased each year 
through tax raises. Thirty units are 
I on location in Philly. 

E One specific test was reportedly 
K made in a location known as Kelly’s 
* Corners. Two Manual units were do- 
ing 800 packs each week in volume 
Wt at 30(^. A new electric unit -with the 
Star- Pack Merchandiser was installed 
ij,, and one manual removed. The new 
' ' ' unit was priced at 35^ while the man- 
ual remained at 30^. The manual did 
about 700 packs the first week, ac- 


cording to Rosen, but the electric, 
with the sales stimulator, sold 743 
packs, bringing the total for the lo- 
cation to 1443 packs. 

The same location now has two 
new units with sales stimulators sell- 
ing cigs at 40(^ (another tax raise 
prompted this increase) and a man- 
ual machine selling cigs for 35(^. The 
volume has not held as high as initial 
test figures, according to Rosen, but 
Rosen has based the drop-off on sum- 
mer sales slumps throughout the 
route and the area and expects the 
higher volume to return after Labor 
Day. 

The machine features a lighted 
panel of cigarette packs with a 
“lucky pack” carrying a four-leaf clo- 
ver which lights up when the lucky 
purchase is made. The free pack is 
delivered and then the pack which 
was paid for is vended upon a press 
of the button for the second time. 
The Star-Pack Merchandiser can be 
installed on any electric cigarette 
machine. 

The unit is on display at the Mid- 
way Manufacturing Company in Chi- 
cago. Rosen, who will be in Chicago 
for the MO A and NAM A Conven- 
tions, will hold showings and explain 
the details of the machine to inter- 
ested parties. He has exclusive na- 
tional distribution on the unit and 
expects to market it beginning this 
month. 


Trade Mourns Death Of B. D. Lazar 


^ PITTSBURGH — The coin-machine in- 

dustry suffered a loss with the recent 
^ death of B. D. Lazar, President of the 
Pittsburgh coin-machine distributing 
firm which bears his name. He was 
^ 69 years of age at the time of his 
’ death and had been ill for four years. 
^ “BD,” as he was known by the 

entire coin-machine industry, founded 
. ^ the B. D. Lazar Co. with his broth- 
er and present President, Josiah D. 
Lazar, in 1919. He was a pioneer in 
the industry, having his main dis- 
' tributing office in Pittsburgh and at 
one time had distributing branches 
r* at Philadelphia, Scranton and Read- 
ing, Penna. 

•x ’ • 


“BD” came to this country from 
Rumania as a young boy, was grad- 
uated from high school in Home- 
stead, Penna. with high honors. Due 
to his excellent grades, he was given 
a 4-year scholarship at University 
of Pittsburgh, where he graduated 
“summa cum laude.” He was a World 
War I veteran, serving his country 
with distinction. “BD” was always 
active in many local and national re- 
ligious and civic organizations, con- 
tributing not only money but also a 
great deal of his time. He is survived 
by his wife. Pearl, and 2 daughters, 
Mrs. Betsy Kanarek and Mrs. Lea- 
rita Garfield.

New York Automatic Canteen Corpo- 
ration, a newly-acquired subsidiary 
of Automatic Canteen Company of

advisecl last week that the firm will 
exhibit at the MOA Convention in

dick assured all distributors and op- 
erators that orders will be taken for 
post-delivery dates. Feddick will be

Association and for the benefit of the 
coin-operated machine industry. 

The following guests were in at- 
tendance: Carl Pavesi, President of 
the Westchester Association, who 
gave a stirring talk on why an oper- 
ator should belong to MOA; Eddy 
Beresth, President of the cigarette 
association, gave a very serious and 
grave talk on the problems of the 
cigarette industry; Jim Hunter and 
Phil Sweeney of Wurlitzer; Irving 
Kempner from Runyon; Mac Perlman 
from Atlantic New York Corpora- 
tion; Dave from Dave’s One-Stop; 
and Gene from Globe Records. 

Abe Fish gave a talk on diversifi- 
cation in the coin-operated machine 
business and showed that not only 
operators but distributors and manu- 
facturers have diversified very heav- 
ily into full vending in addition to 
their games and music. “Just as the 
new frontier has hit in government 
circles, so the space age has hit coin- 
machine operations in addition to 
manufacturing and distributing. One 
of the grave problems in this indus- 
try today is the problem that is had 
with minors buying cigarettes from 
vending machines, and unless the cig- 
arette industry has good public rela- 
tions on this problem with the store- 
keepers and with the civil authorities 

Cine-Sonic 
Wiii Show In NY Hotel 

NEW Y 0 R K — Cine-Sonic Sound 
Corp., manufacturers of background 
music equipment, will not exhibit at 
the MOA Convention but will have 
on display in New York City a com- 
plete background music station serv- 
ing 240 lines, according to Iz Edel- 
man. President. 

The firm will display at the New 
Yorker Hotel during the next month, 
and while Edelman will be on hand 
in Chicago, the equipment will be 
displayed at the New Yorker Hotel. 
At press time, the reason for Cine- 
Sonic ’s departure fi’om annual MOA 
participation was his dissatisfaction 
with a last-minute booth offered the 
firm. Cine - Sonic has exhibited at 
MOA each year since its inception. 

In addition to the equipment, Edel- 
man asked operators to use his tape 
program for all taped music require- 
ments. The Cine-Sonic library is ex- 
tensive and just last year went into 
14" reels to serve the new equipment. 
Edelman also has tape - repeaters 
which utilize cartridges. 

Distributor territories are available 
for the Cine-Sonic package, and ex- 
port inquiries are also invited. The 
firm owns its own duplicating facili- 
ties and boasts a wide selection of 
custom-type music for all locations. 


there are going to be many problems 
with the cigarette vending industry,” 
said Fish. 

He also gave an excellent speech 
on “Why Operators Need an Associa- 
tion,” and urged operators to support 
their association and cooperate with 
their association by paying dues, by 
attending meetings and working to- 
gether to lift this industry up by its 
bootstraps, so that we can be on the 
same level as any other industry in 


No Action On Ceiler Bill 

WASHINGTON, D.C .— The Full 
House Judiciary Committee which ap- 
proved the Ceiler Bill was expected 
to send the proposed legislation to 
the House Rules Committee this week 
following printing of the final text. 
The Rules Committee will then decide 
on whether the bill will go before the 
House, and if so, will calendar a date 
for such action. At press time this 
was the status of the juke box bill. 


this country. The operator must re- 
member that an association protects 
his interests in all ways and is always 
working for the operator’s benefit.

You're missing a good bet if you ignore the poten- 
tials of Background Music! It puts you one step ahead 
of the operator v/ho can't offer music, it secures old 
and ne\A/ accounts when they want music as part of 
a "package," it provides a good entree for going 
after new business, and incidentally — it brings in 
a real nice profit. 

Tape-Athon can provide you with the finest back- 
ground tape system available, backed up by one of 
the world's largest music libraries. This is a com- 
bination easy to sell, nothing to service, and real 
nice to make money from. Want more data? Write,

NYC License Commissioner Approves 
Coin-Operated 6 Pkt. Pooi Tabie 

■ U.S. Biiiiards' Simon Gains Favorabie Decision 


■ State Amendment Heips Pave Way For Approvai 
To Operate In City Under Common Show License 


: NEW YORK— The New York City 
‘ ) License Commissioner approved a 6- 
I pocket coin-operated pool table here 
on Au^st 8th, thereby permitting the 
operation of a coin-operated 6-pocket 
’ table in the metropolitan New York 
area for the first time, without re- 
stricting such operation to billiard 
parlor rules and regulations. Hereto- 
fore, only bumper models were per- 
'■ mitted to be operated with a common 
show license. 

The approval came about following 
the presentation of a ‘Comet 6700’ 
|i> coin-operated pool table, manufac- 
tured by U.S. Billiards Inc., new pool 
I table manufacturer located in Amity- 
I ville. New York and headed by Albert 
Simon, president of Albert Simon Inc., 
distributor for Auto-Photo Company, 
I Chicago Coin, and Rock-Ola phono- 
j graphs. 

Earlier this year, as a result of a 
!‘* similar effort by upstate operators, 
the New York State Coin Machine 
Operators Guild brought about a pool 
j table ruling when Section 344 of the 
! , Penal Code was amended to permit 
coin-operated pool tables to be oper- 
1„, ated in the State. 

f!' The ruling didn’t include cities with 
j a population of more than 400,000. 
|t> This excluded NYC and Buffalo. (See 
I ruling effecting NY State reprinted

I, AMITYVILLE, N.Y.— A1 Simon, U.S. 
Billiards Inc., announced last week 
that the firm will exhibit its complete 
Comet Six Pocket line, featuring four 
I different sizes, the Deluxe Rotation 
Bumper Pool line, with two models, 
and a new Regulation Size Table 
>■ measuring “a full 4%' x 9'” in dimen- 
sion, for the first time. The firm has 
retained booths 58, 59 and 60. 

Simon said, “The regulation model 
. . will be the basis for the manufacture 
f of a professional size table and will 
'‘I serve as evidence of continued expan- 
sion of our firm’s coin-operated 
amusement machine line.’’ 


Cash Box). The State ruling played 
a part in the City’s approval of the 
game. 

The mechanics of the Commis- 
sioner’s approval went about as fol- 
lows: Simon’s attorneys presented a 
letter, following conversations con- 
cerning the features of the game, 
which outlined the dimensions of the 
game, noting that the size of the 
coin-operated model is smaller than 
a regulation 6-pocket pool table, and 
that the game has no provision for 
return of ‘scratch’ balls, plus the fact 
that the balls used are smaller in size 
than regulation pool balls. “Insertion 
of a coin offers the player a prede- 
termined 15 balls for each coin,” 
stated the attorney, following Simon’s 
instructions. The comparison was 
made between the coin-operated 
model and the regulation game used 
in billiard parlors, and the favorable 
decision was rendered, following sub- 
mission of a photo of the ‘Comet 
6700’. 

The License Comissioner approved 
operation of the game under a com- 
mon show license stating that while 
Amendment 344 of the Penal Law 
was not applicable to the City of New 
York, it “nevertheless expresses a 
legislative intent that the presence 
of one such table within any premises 
shall not require its licensing as a 
billiard parlor.” 

The decision opens to manufac- 
turers, distributors, and operators of 
coin-operated pool tables a metro- 
politan market which boasts 8000 
taverns plus many thousands of other 
establishments which may be con- 
sidered good locations for such equip- 
ment. 

At press time the only other pool 
table manufacturer who claimed li- 
cense department approval was Irving 
Kaye of the Irving Kaye Company in 
Brooklyn. When contacted Kaye 
stated that he had received appproval 
on his 6-pocket line. 

Shuffle alleys and similar equip- 
ment released regularly here must 
be submitted to the license depart- 
ment regardless of how similar the 
various manufacturer’s machines may 
be in design and operation.

IMPORTERS ARRIVE AT CHICAGO’S SHERATON HOTEL 


CHICAGO — Norbert Levy and Gerard 
I Caen won’t have a minute to them- 
selves during their trip to Chicago 
this week. The coin machine importers 
have publicly announced that they 
want to buy equipment — for cash, for 
shipments to Common Market coun- 
tries. If the average exporter in this 
country knows a good customer when 
he sees one he should recognize Levy, 


who heads Ets. Leca, and Caen, head 
of Ets. Mepadi, both firms with head- 
quarters in Metz, France. 

Mepadi is the Rock-Ola distributor 
in France. Leca distributes Gottlieb 
and re-sells used amusement ma- 
chines of all kinds. The two men will 
be at Chicago’s Sheraton until Sep- 
tember 9th, when they will return to 
New York and then home to Europe.

Distribs along Tenth Avenue last week were preparing for what may shape 
up as a good post-Labor Day business period. Several reasons were offered; 
there is no slack in collections these days; the economy in general hasn’t been 
rocked with anything injurious for months; new music machines always stim- 
ulate interest and Rock-Ola has a new machine; pool tables have dominated 
the scene for months and most of ’em took on a new appearance with an- 
nouncements from Kaye, Fischer, US Billiards, and American Shuffleboard 
stating that new lines for ’64 will be unveiled at the MO A show. (Valley is 
waiting but will show its ’64 series when ready.) The stylings of these new 
6-pocket events are said to be really something. Music collections are holding 
well, Seeburg’s 33 LP program is evidently bringing in extra collection money, 
what with those huge diner installations going in, and when ops stop to check 
service costs against last year, they sometimes come to the conclusion that 
many of today’s machines just don’t break down as often as years gone by. 
When you try to put your finger on why business is good (or bad) you run 
into difficulties. Who knows? Let’s just hope it continues. 

A1 Simon can take credit for spearheading the okay on 6-pocket pool tables 
in NYC with the blessings of the license dept. Simon sent his ‘Comet 6700’ 
table (photo) down and had his attorneys handle the presentation to the li- 
cense dept., and this plus a good argument in the form of the recent NYS 
ruling convinced the (Commissioner that a coin-operated table is smaller than 
a regulation, doesn’t permit return of pool balls as do the regulation tables, 
and furthermore the cue balls are smaller. “Okay, operate them” said the 
Commissioner, and a whole new territory is opened to 6-pocket manufacturers, 
just as was the case when the upstate coinmen opened the State (outside of 
the City). Irving Kaye told us his table has been approved, Valley hasn’t sent 
one down yet, and neither has Fischer at press time, but the machines will 
no doubt all be cleared before long. But Simon opened the gates. 

Sorry to hear about Mike Gagliardi, long-time parts manager for Active 
Amusement Machine Company in Philly. Mike was with Joe Ash for about 
18 years and was only 34 years of age when he died. He leaves a wife and 
three children. 

Izzie Edelman is miffed with MOA execs because they couldn’t accommodate 
him, so the veteran manufacturer is showing his Background Music Station 
(240 Stations) in his Hotel New Yorker suite and tells music ops “even if 
you are operating someone else’s equipment. I’ll give you the best tape deal 
in the country.” Edelman has a broad background music catalog. He’ll go to 
Chi but he won’t show. 

Meyer Parkoff is buying back used Little LP’s for 50(; on the purchase of 
a new little LP which places the new cost to ops at $1 instead of the $1.50 
they’ve been paying (and now if the disk doesn’t get played they can trade it). 
Used Little LP’s are available for 60('. 

Allie Goldberg, tending the store at the Music Distribs Wurlitzer outlet, 
advises that ops are interested in the 33 Ip’s. “They’re not rushing me, but 
they’re buying some.” 

Lou Wolberg, now heading the NYC Runyon offices, advises that amusement 
equipment is moving very well considering the pre-Labor Day period. Perry 
Lowengrub is back in the groove after his European trip, and Morris Rood, 
who is now in the Springfield offices, doesn’t have to answer to our weekly 
question “what’s new?” Kempy hit the road and called in some nice orders. 

Willie Blatt wants all of the oldtimers to sit down in Chi during MOA and 
have a bite, a drink, or just plain conversation. If you want to join him, and 
you’re old enough, you’ll see the Little Colonel walking the Convention floors 
during the seven-day show period. We’re too young. 

Everyone’s wife wants to win the mink stole Irv Holzman has donated for 
a drawing at the Nevele Country Club Sept. 14, but when you get the bill from 
your wife for the clothes she bought to go with it, you’ll be sorry she didn’t 
win the TV set, which is the third prize. The Miami vacation could cost you 
an arm and a leg. If you win, try and get out of town without your mate 
(lotsa luck). Irving, your prizes are beautiful, but you’re gonna break up a 
couple of families! Holzman and his wife Ruth stopping at the Sands Hotel 
before MOA. 

No word from Irving Kaye on his “surprises” for the MOA, but you can 
bet he’s gonna put something special into those 7 exhibition booths . . . A1 
Simon will show his Comet line, his rotation bumper models, and a new line — 
regulation size. 

In the meantime, ChiCoin’s new ‘Spare Light’ bowler is en route and the 
’64 Rock-Ola line is being readied for op showings in two weeks. 

Dave Rosen is another guy who starts early in the morning. No sooner had 
his ‘Cinebox’ got off the ground than he turned to an idea that mechanic John 
(^herpress came up with last year — a sales stimulator for cigarette machines 
now called the “Star Pack Merchandiser.” The machine fits atop an electric 
machine of any make and when the lucky patron comes along to make a pur- 
chase, at the push of a button he gets one pack free. Push the button again 
and the pack you paid for comes out. The star on the electric sign lights up 
in the same way the star on National cash registers light up in food stores 
all over Pennsylvania, so the legal end seems to be safe. Dave has the unit 
out at Midway, Hank Ross is in production on it, and the tests are over. Sales 
in one location went from 800 packs on a manual to 700 on the manual and 
743 on the electric with the Star-Pack, according to Rosen. He’ll be at the 
show promoting the unit. Has exclusive national distribution on it. 

John Bilotta crowned songster-funnyman Frank Fontaine the “King of the 
Golden Oldies” last week in Syracuse. Incidentally, the ‘Cinebox’ is at the 
NTS Fair and Bilotta is raving over the reception. , • 

Joe Munves will be found during MOA time in the Southland Engineering 
Corp booth where Bud Lurie is holding down^ the fort. I doubt that Harry 
Williams will be in for the show. No word on it. 

Lou Boorstein may have to cancel MOA plans to speak on Prograrnmii^ 
illness in the family . . . Verle Van Nattan, Auto-Photo sales head, will show 
the line at MOA . . . Hank Ross at Midway has the new game ready but he 
won’t show a picture of it until the show breaks . . . Tape-Athon expected to 
lure more distribs into the fold during the show. They are moving units at a 
good clip, according to our west coast man . . . Marvin Roth, Wilkes-Barre 
distrib, will attend the MOA Show as always and expects to do some trading 
while there . . . Davis Distributing doing a fine job with the Seeburg Conso- 
lettes in the upstate area. Some installations run as high as 40 wallboxes . . . 
Royal’s Clint Shockey will attend MOA and then return to let Harold Hoffman 
get out to the NAMA show. The lads just took on WuHitzer completely in the 
Ohio territory and Bob Bear couldn’t be happier. Ditto A. D. Palmer . . . 
Wurlitzer will send about ten men, loads of equipment, have already purchased 
almost one dozen tables at the MOA banquet and are bringing distribs in from 
all over the country for the MOA clambake. It better be good, according to 
officials, or they won’t return next year. In the meantime they’re doing every- 
thing possible to support the association . . . Nick Malone and Sol Lipkin will 
show shuffleboards and pool at MOA . . . Art Brier will show the Starlite 
Smokeshop line . . . and we will tell you all about both the MOA and NAMA 
in two weeks.

Chicago Chatter 


I WELCOME TO CHICAGO! This cordial greeting is graciously extended by 
Harry Snodgrass, Clint Pierce, Lou Casola, Bob Blundred and Jim Tolisano —

Hotel pleasant and exciting. MOA’s convention heads are Lou Casola, gen. 
chairman; and James Tolisano, vice-chairman. Their chief aides are: John 
(Red) Wallace, A. L. (Lou) Ptacek, Larry Marvin, Harlan Wingrave, William 
Cannon, Joe Fling, Ted Nichols, Maynard Hopkins, Paul Brown and Clint 
) Pierce.

, the lovely Millie McCarthy!) as: Royce Green, Sr., Frank Fabiano, C. C. Bishop, 
Carl Pavesi, Millie McCarthy, Howard Ellis, Jim Hutzler, Tommy Greco, Bill 
Anderson (our favorite legislator!). K. A. Romney, Bill Hullinger, Les Mon- 
I tooth, Joe Silla, Vic Ostergren, Herb Tonnell, Ralph Ridgeway, Jack Bess, A1 
Denver, Pete Geritz, Charles Tashima, W. A. Chambers, Norm Gefke, Henry 
i»- Leyser and Bob Lindelof. 

One of the highlights on the convention’s business agenda will be the elec- 
tion of officers and the board of directors for 1964. The new panel of officers 
‘f will be installed by the outgoing president, J. Harry Snodgrass, during the 
gala banquet Friday evening. Sept. 6. 

I Most everyone in coinbiz and the music industry knows that Hirsh De La 
Viez produced the floor show for this year’s convention, as he has in the past 
iji years. We recall that Hirsh presented some excellent shows, and this one — 
we’re told — is a fine, interesting presentation. Headliners will be such stars as 
A1 Martino, Lionel Hampton, Li’l Wally and his Polka Group, Joe Williams, The 
J’s With Jaimie, the Mark V, Billy Barnett, Roy Clark, and including Revelle 
i[ the Magician and the Rudy Noel Dancers. Popular orkster Frank York heads 
I up the big band, 
ji 

Howard Ellis, secretary of the Music Guild of Nebraska, info’s that the next 
Nebraska State meeting will be held at the Evans Hotel, in Columbus, Ne- 
braska, Sept. 14 & 15. Hosts will be Prexy Frank Holys and his lovely Frau, 
and Mr. & Mrs. Doc Strol. . . . Did you know that W. R. (Bill) Weikel’s mother, 
1 who passed away in California recently, was a third cousin of Abraham Lin- 

f ’ coin ? The lovely lady was very proud of her lineage — and so are we to know 

of this. Bill. 

We pause briefly to memorialize a coinbiz friend who died recently — Stuart 
F. Auer, a vice president of the Seeburg Corp. Stu died in his home in Bel- 
vedere, Calif., Thurs., Aug. 22, at .39. We extend our heartfelt condolences to 
his grieving wife, Lee Auer. 

First Coin’s prexy Joe Kline now knows his baseball playing days are over. 
He was quite a ball player in his youth. However, Joe joined his son, Gary, in 
a game during their recent vacation — and, the result was a couple of fractured 
fingers for Joe. (He’ll take his baseball in front of a TV set — with a tall, cool 
I highball from now on!

All of the normally busy execs at Rowe AC Services are getting ready for 
lots of action during the big convention week. ... As we get ready for the 
two biggest industry conventions this coming week we are first headed for 
/^v Omaha for a “splashing” good time at Hymie and Eddie Zorinsky’s gala pool- 
side party, Sunday, Sept. 1, in the Prom Townhouse Motel. The reason for the 
festivities is to introduce Rock-Ola’s new phono line (for ’64) and the “Cara- 
velle” cigarette machine to areawide operators. 

f A perennial MOA visitor is coinvet Willie Blatt, who wants to get together 
with other oldtimers. He urges all oldtimers to contact him at the Morrison 
.> Hotel. . . . Congrats to Bob Fabian, who was upped by prexy Eddie Ginsburg 
to vice president in charge of sales at Atlas Music Co. Bob’s hobby is flying 
airplanes, and he’s logged a lot of flying hours. 

Although there isn’t as much action from record manufacturers as we’d like 
to see at this year’s MOA Convention, we get the impression that there will be 
a hefty attendance from many of the prominent companies. They’ll look in, 
, _ and what they see will help to determine what they do next year. . . . Cash Box 
prexy Joe Orleck is starting to get anxious to come to Chi to see so many of 
his old friends. He hopes to see most of them, so come on, fellows, pack your

who’s handling the mike chores at the MOA shindig will take his radio shows 
^ remote via WTAQ from the Morrison Hotel. Among his interview guests will

UNITED’S “FURY” BALL 
BOWLER AT MOA 



BILL DESELM 


CHICAGO — A second new United 
amusement game will be unveiled in 
the firm’s MOA exhibit according to 
C. B. (Bill) DeSelm, director of sales 
and executive vice president of United 
Manufacturing Company. 

This addition is called the “Fury” 
coin-operated big ball bowling alley, 
and is reportedly as lavishly equipped 
with somewhat the same innovations 
in the cabinet and bowling (scoring) 
features as United’s “Ultra” shuffle 
alley (puck) bowler (story in Cash 
Box, August 31 issue). 

The new ball bowler is highlighted 
by a new concept in coin-operated 
bowling cabinetry, in which appear- 
ance and ease in servicing are greatly 
emphasized, DeSelm stated. 


Frantz At Show 



JOHN FRANTZ 


CHICAGO — John F. Frantz, president 
of J. F. Frantz Manufacturing Com- 
pany in this city, advised this past 
week that Frantz exhibit booth in the 
amusement game room at the MOA 
Convention, September 4-6, will fea- 
ture two Frantz amusement machines 
that are selling well in this country 
and in several foreign markets (in 
Europe and in the Far East). 

They are: “Little Leaguer — Double 
Header” two-player, competitive 
baseball-type game, and “U. S. Mar- 
shal” pistol-target game with gum- 
ball vendors on each side (the entire 
unit is on a single, sturdy stand). 

In order to further encourage op- 
erator participation, and to help pro- 
mote the unified support of all coin- 
men — whether they are operators, 
manufacturers or distributors (whole- 
salers) — Frantz has donated one 
“Little Leaguer — Double Header” 
game as a door prize. 

“Naturally, we are delighted to of- 
fer our support to this necessary 
cause, and hope that this is the first 
of many successful conventions, after 
several ‘dry years’,” stated Frantz.

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y.— 
,• Wurlitzer representatives from all 

' parts of the United States will con- 

I verge on Chicago for the M.O.A. Con- 

vention. Booth 9 in the grand ball- 
. room, actually the size of three normal 
booths, has been assigned to the 
I Wurlitzer Company which plans to 

I show a complete line of automatic 

music, remote equipment and, accord- 
ing to Bob Bear, “A couple of little 
surprises.” 

i Headed by Bear, the Sales Man- 

ager, the Wurlitzer group will include 
Gary Sinclair from the West Coast 
who will come to Chicago accom- 
panied by Clayton Ballard, Manager 
of the Los Angeles factory branch, 
and Walter Huber who holds the same 
post in San Francisco. Bert Davidson, 

, Chicago sales representative, will be 
' on hand as well as field service en- 
gineers, C. B. Ross of Milwaukee and 
u Harry Gregg of Doreville, Georgia 
who will assist in the display set-up 
and discuss service slants with visit- 
" ing servicemen. A. D. Palmer, Jr., 
Advertising and Sales Promotion 
Manager will preceed the contingent 
, to set up the booth, arrange reserva- 

i' tions for visiting Wurlitzer distri- 

butors, and generally “get the show 
on the road.” 

Fred Osborne, Director of Phono- 
graph Engineering and other Wurlit- 
zer executives from North Tonawanda 
and Chicago are expected to visit the 
show during the various days when 
■' the exhibit floor is open. For the ban- 
& quet on Friday, the closing night, 
^ Wurlitzer has reserved six tables and 
distributors attending the convention 
will be the company’s guests for the 
dinner and stage show. 

1963 is the first occasion in several 
years that Wurlitzer and two other 
major phonograph manufacturers 
I have participated in the show and en- 
j,. thusiasm for a good operator attend- 
i" ance is running high. “This is a kind 
\ * of make it or break it year,” says 

1 A. D. Palmer, “and I hope that the 

I operators, manufacturers of games, 
r « ' the record people and their artists 

will be out in force to insure continu- 
, ation of this show which when prop- 
erly attended can offer nothing but 
j , good to those in all facets of our in- 
■ ” dustry.”

All this jazz, to put it factually if a little 
breathlessly, is the new Rowe AMI 
coin-operated phonograph. It’s real- 
istically priced; it gives you program- 
ming flexibility— change from 200 
selections to 160, or 100, or right back 
again; it delivers the orbital sound of 
Stereo Round* without remote speak- 
ers; it has a dramatic, full-width per- 
sonalization panel; a “Top Talent” 
tune display that eliminates “double” 
title strips; it has loads of salesman- 
ship in its constantly changing light, 
color movement; it has a diamond 
stylus good for 50,000 plays. 

Tell you what. Why not see your 
Rowe AC Services distributor today? 
He can give you the full story a little 
less breathlessly,

ChiCoin Back In Pingame Biz With 'Sun Valley 
Will Also Intro 'Spare Lite Bowler At MO A 



CHICAGO — Stellar attractions in 
Chicago Dynamic Industries’ booth 
#25 on the exhibit floor of the MOA 
Convention in the Morrison Hotel this 
week will be two new coin-operated 
amusement games — “Sun Valley’’ 
two-player pinball, and Official “Spare 
Lite’’ big ball bowling alley. 

In “Sun Valley” Sam Wolberg and 
Sam Gensburg, co-heads of the Chi- 
cago based coin machine manufac- 
turer, placed strong emphasis on the 
fact that it is the very first of many 
such pinball amusement games to be 
produced by the firm in recent years. 

Mort Secure Chicago Coin’s sales 
director, stressed the fact that this 
new amusement breakthrough for the 
firm is already reaping rich rewards 
in sales and acceptance from coin 
machine operators. 

He said: “‘Sun Valley’s’ striking 
attractiveness and exciting scoring 
innovations are drawing players to it 
in droves. It appears that Chicago 
Coin’s re-entry into the pinball busi- 
ness is already a great success!” 

Recently Secure took the Cash Box 
reporter to a test location (a bowling 
alley in the northern suburbs) to have 
him observe, at first hand, the kind 
of action “Sun Valley” delivers. After 
two games a group of bowlers gath- 
ered around to watch the two players 
in action. And, then, they in turn 
eventually picked up the pace in com- 
petitive play. 

Secure already refers to “Sun Val- 
ley” as the all-new, location proven, 
profit earning champ, based on its 
performance in sales and acceptance. 

The cabinet, he said, is loaded with 
attractive illustrations on the play- 
field and backglass. There is a group- 
ing of nine numbered rollovers set 
into a square on the playfield, with 
a corresponding lighted square on the 
backglass. When the player makes all 
of the numbered rollovers he is 
awarded a higher score. There is also 
a ChiCoin “Match Feature.” 



SAMUEL WOLBERG 


The scoring-frame has a flashy 
stainless steel trim on the front, and 
protective metal corners at the back 
to prevent damage during the life of 
the game. Hand rests at the front of 
the cabinet are constructed of “Cyco- 
lac” plastic for greater durability 
(Secure explained that this is the 
same material from which telephones 
are made — it will not tarnish, has 
longer life, and remains clean and 
neat). 

As in all Chicago Coin amusement 
games the cabinet has the firm’s ex- 
clusive “Lift-Out” self-locking play- 
field, for instantaneous, and easy ac- 
cess to the interior mechanism (no 
screws or levers). 

The second big “surpise” amuse- 
ment game introduced this week by 
Chicago Coin is Official “Spare Lite,” 
six player big ball bowling alley, 
which has a new ‘Mass Player-Appeal’ 
feature. This is a special play in- 
ducer which shows bowling beginners, 
and experts as well, how to follow 
through in playing the game for high- 
est possible score. 

As Secure explains it, there is a 


directional indicator system showing 
players where to aim at the pins to 
pick up every spare. The directional 
arrow on the playfield lights up. 

Official “Spare Lite” cabinet is at- 
tractively enhanced by a bright, new 
color combination. It also has a com- 
pletely cork-insulated, rubber 
mounted playfield — for super quiqt 
play. Other playfield innovations in- 
clude: A positive ball-return ramp, a 
nylon gutter guard rail, and a sturdy 
steel, pilfer-proof, side-open cash box. 

There is also the ChiCoin “Swing- 
Away” servicing convenience in the 
backbox, which — according to Chicago 
Coin’s engineering dept. — permits 10 
second servicing. 

Official “Spare Lite” bowler is 
available to operators in the 13 foot 
and 21 foot alley lengths. Also avail- 
able are 5(^, 10^! or 3 for 50<^ models. 

At the front of the playfield is a 
recessed rubber shin guard to protect 
the legs of players from possible 
bruising. 

Secure placed particular stress on 
the new “Free-Back” backboard de- 
sign, which now permits all-location 
installation anywhere (in the corner 
or against a wall). This, along with 
the “Swing- Away” cabinet, are re- 
ferred to by Secure as a revolution- 
ary breakthrough in the firm’s con- 
siderable efforts to add substantially 
more convenience to the servicing of 
Chicago Coin Machine Company’s 
amusement games. 

The six “action-packed” bowling 
and scoring games in Official “Spare 
Lite” are: “Select Strike” scoring, 
“Beat-The-Champ,” “Dual Flash” 
scoring, “3 Star,” “Flash-O-Matic,” 
and the standard “Regulation” bowl- 
ing. 

Other Chicago Coin amusement 
games on display in booth #25, in ad- 
dition to “Sun Valley” and Official 
“Spare Lite,” are “Strike Ball” puck 
shuffle bowler, and “Riot Gun” rifle- 
target amusement game.

SEACOAST DISTRIBUTORS, INC. 

Established 1 930 

1200 North Avenue, Elizabeth, N.J. • Bigelow 8-3524 

Exclusive Rock-Ola Distributor, North N. Jersey 


NEW YORK — The word was still 
‘mum’ at the Irving Kaye Brooklyn 
plant last week as the Kaye crew 
prepared to ship the firm’s new 
models to Chicago for the MOA Con- 
vention. While the trade was aware 
that Kaye had a new pool table line 
ready to show, not too many in the 
industry saw the new models up to 
show time. 

Early visitors to the firm’s factory 
weren’t permitted into the experi- 
mental rooms. It was expected, how- 
ever, that in addition to new styling 
on the pool table line, there was a 
possibility of a new machine also 
being readied for the show. No offi- 
cial word was available on this, how- 
ever. When contacted, Irving Kaye 
had nothing much to say but “Wait 
and see.” You can do just that in Chi- 
cago at any one of the seven Kaye 
booths being manned by Kaye, his son 
Howard, Sales Manager; Art Daddis, 
newly appointed Director of Sales, 
and other Kaye officials on hand for 
the trade show. 

A new model — the ‘Mark V’ — was 
erroneously reported in production in 
this space two weeks ago. At that 
time the samples were being shipped. 
The machine will be at the show, 
however. 


Hoizman Kidded For 
Plush Gift-Giving 


NEW YORK — If you don’t give, they 
hate you. If you give too much, they 
kid you. Either way you can’t win. 
That’s Irving Holzman’s problem this 
week as the United East Coast Cor- 
poration head preps his big Holz- 
man-United drawing skedded for the 
Nevele Country Club in the Catskills 
following the close of the Chicago 
Conventions. The upstate trade as- 
sociation event, which will be held 
September 13-15, will feature a draw- 
ing for fabulous prizes, and its all 
through the courtesy of Hoizman and 
the United Manufacturing Co. “I 
didn’t want to do the usual thing we 
do each year at the weekend outing 
so I decided to donate a mink stole, a 
Miami Beach vacation, and an RCA 
portable TV. This way I get a ride 
for my participation, the winners get 
some great prizes, it livens up the 
event, and besides, my slogan is: 
“United Operators Are Successful 
Operators.” Hoizman said that if you 
win any of these prizes, you have to 
be considered successful. “Would a 
pauper wear a mink stole boarding a 
plane for Miami Beach, carrying a 
portable TV?”, chirped the coinman. 
Everyone registering at the Nevele 
with the coin machine group will re- 
ceive a free ticket to the drawing. 
“Even the competition,” added Hoiz- 
man, smilingly.

Automatic Retailers 
Advances Globus 

PHILADELPHIA— Ralph Globus has 
been appointed to the executive com- 
mittee of Automatic Retailers of 
America as vice president in charge 
of all food and vending service to 
business and industry clients in the 
eastern United States. 

Davre J. Davidson, president, said 
Globus is responsible for ARA service 
approximating $60 million in sales 
annually, or about one third of com- 
pany revenue for fiscal 1962. ARA is 
one of the nation’s largest vending 
and food service organizations. Its 
stock was listed for trading last 
month on the New York Stock Ex- 
change. 

A native of Baltimore, Globus at- 
tended Johns Hopkins University. 
After eight years in restaurant man- 
agement in that city, he established 
a vending firm in 1949 originally in- 
corporated as Kwik Kafe, Inc. In 
1959, he founded Automatic Food 
Systems, Inc. a regional network of 
vending companies. At the time of its 
i acquisition by ARA, the company had 
annual sales of approximately $15 
million. 

Globus resides at Park Towne 
Apartments, 2200 Benjamin Franklin 
Parkway, Philadelphia.

I' i- 

IK'* 


CHICAGO — In a joint announcement, 
Thomas Hungerford, Executive Di- 
rector of NAMA, and Walter Reed, 
Director of Public Relations, advised 
the trade of a special news conference 
on “A Study Of Teenage Smoking 
Habits” scheduled to take place dur- 
ing the NAMA Convention, Septem- 
ber 9. 

The conference, which will be held 
at the Sheraton-Chicago Hotel, in the 
Lake Ontario Room, center around a 
discussion of sales to minors, between 
interested parties. 

“The problem of illegal sale of 
cigarettes to minors (teenagers) and 
the position of the cigarette vending 
industry, are closely related,” stated 
the release. The inference was di- 
rected at NAMA’s recent programs 
concerning the connection between 
civic drives against teenage smoking, 
vending machines, and the sometime 
overlapping of this problem into areas 
of health, which has no logical re-
